Caroline Venuti is a retired teacher and principal who has served on the Library Advisory Board and the Transportation Advisory Committee for the city of Homer.

When asked if being an elementary school teacher prepares her for city council, Venuti smiles and says she has learned excellent management skills.

“Try heading a third-grade class on the first day of school,” she says.

One of Venuti’s primary points of focus is on disaster preparedness.

Schools could be in for painful cuts in the upcoming fiscal year. It all depends on the votes that come out of the state legislature. This week on the Coffee Table we checked in with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District to keep you informed on how cuts from Juneau will translate into the classroom. Our guests were the principals of Homer Middle School, Chapman School in Anchor Point, Razdolna and Kachemak Selo as well as Superintendent Sean Dusek.
