Guam - With his State of Education Address complete, Department of Education superintendent Jon Fernandez is now rolling up his sleeves to improve the Government of Guam's largest agency. He says contract negotiations may be more successful now that he serves as the voice for the island's teachers.

"The board will have to take the lead on that. I'm just kind of here to advise and to let them know what my priorities are," Fernandez said. "I just set open lines of communication and make sure that I know if there are issues that affect our teachers. Our teachers matter they're going to be the key to our success."

Fernandez adds he will also work more with the Governor's Education Task Force and their priority to renovate Untalan Middle School so the wildcats can return to their Barrigada home by 2014.

KUAM-TV will rebroadcast Fernandez's State of Education Address on Monday, Wednesday and Friday on MCV Local 2 at 7:30 in the evening, and Saturday and Sunday at 8:30pm.
