“I am running for Amity Board of Education because I believe in high standards, accountability, collaboration and community.  As a teacher, coach, volunteer and organizer, I bring a wealth of experience to the table and I am excited to get the chance to serve my community.  My family moved to Orange because of the quality of the school systems here and we are looking forward to helping Amity continue to thrive for years to come.”
