I am a current Sparta Board of Education Trustee who is running for a three-year term in November. I am an Elementary School Principal who has been in the field of education for over twenty years. I earned my BA in Secondary Education-English from Clemson University in South Carolina and later earned my MA in Education Leadership, Management, and Policy from Seton Hall University. I taught English and Journalism at Wallkill Valley High School for six years. In 2007, I was the recipient of Sussex County’s “Inspiring Teacher Award.”
I left the classroom to accept a position at a large urban high school as the Assistant Principal of Student Management. I was given the additional responsibility of serving as Supervisor of Special Education for the high school’s special education teachers. I also have experience as a Middle School Assistant Principal. Before heading to West Milford, where I have been for the last 10 years, I served as Supervisor of the Humanities including the English, History, Music, and Art departments for the Clark Public Schools. I also was the district’s Anti-Bullying Coordinator and the Advanced Placement Testing Coordinator at the high school.
Experienced. Consistent. Dedicated.
I feel my experience as a career educator has helped me to serve in my capacity as a current Sparta Board of Education Trustee. I also care deeply about the Spartan community. I am the product of Sparta Public Schools, as well as a proud graduate of Pope John High School. It was an easy decision when my husband Stephen and I were deciding where to buy a home and raise a family. Sparta is a wonderful, beautiful place with an amazing school system. We are also fortunate to have my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew in Sparta, as well! Our daughter, Olivia, attends Alpine School, and she is involved with several local sports and programs.
I take great pride in my role as a current Board of Education member. I seek to support the efforts of the Superintendent and the administration to make the best possible decisions for the district’s stakeholders but with the students’ interests in the forefront. I am an informed Board member who asks questions but who also listens. I also feel it is important to truly understand the role of a Board of Education member and to be a communicator between the school district and the community.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet and talk with as many members of our community during this process and beyond. Please feel free to reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, through our website, or any of our social media accounts. It has truly been a pleasure serving our community in this capacity, and I hope to continue to do so!
We can't wait to meet you!
We will be informing the public about various events, meet-and-greets, and fundraisers over the next several months. We enthusiastically await the opportunity to meet as many community members as possible during this process and look forward to conversations about how Sparta Public Schools can continue to meet with success!
