For the past five years, I have had the honor of serving as President of the Wallace School Parent Teacher Team (PTT). For more years than I want to admit, I have been involved in Hoboken recreation and community programs. With this experience, and my most important role as a mother of two children who have always attended the Hoboken public schools, I have decided to seek your support in my efforts to become an independent member of the Hoboken Board of Education.
Some of my proudest moments, during my tenure as President of the PTT, have been seeing ideas that benefit our children become a reality. I am delighted to have been:
• Leading the effort to bring Kindergarten thru 8th grade back to our elementary schools
• Mobilizing hundreds of parents over the years to take an active role in their children’s education
• Organizing family-focused events to bring together teachers, students and parents
The Hoboken public schools are great places for our children to learn, grow and thrive, but, there is always room for improvement. As we begin our journey with our new Superintendent, I want to bring my experience as an involved and committed parent and as an independent advocate for our children to the Board of Education.
I look forward to the privilege of working with our teachers, taxpayers, parents, community members and students in developing a course of action which always places the concerns of Hoboken’s children first.
Please join me on April 17, 2007, in bringing an independent voice for our children to the Board of Education by voting 7A.
