Tuesday, November 5th, 2013
I am grateful to my colleagues on the Board of Education for unanimously appointing me to fill an eight-month position, and I would be honored to serve a 3-year term if you choose to extend my time of service. My daughters are in kindergarten and second grade at Deerfield, and my family has a strong interest in maintaining the exceptional educational standards of the Millburn School District. Our community is very fortunate to have such a wonderful group of candidates who are passionate about the Millburn School District, and I request that you vote for me to continue on the Board of Education.
Since moving to Short Hills in 2008, we’ve made strong connections with our neighbors and parents of our daughters’ classmates. We have also established friendships with families throughout the district via involvement with the Millburn Integrated Preschool and Christ Church Nursery School as well as through membership in the Racquets Club of Short Hills and other community activities.
Volunteerism is a cornerstone of our family values. Prior to my service on the Board of Education, I served in leadership positions for Millburn School District’s Strategic Plan as a Co-Leader of the Status of our Schools Research Subcommittee and most recently as a Co-Leader of community teams focused on creating Action Plans for broadening Resources within the district. In addition, my spouse has also been an extremely active community volunteer serving as the Millburn Integrated Preschool PTO President for two years and currently a member of the Millburn-Short Hills Education Foundation, Caring Kids and Cora Hartshorn Arboretum boards as well as being a class parent and co-chair of Deerfield’s Strawberry Festival.
I understand the sizeable obligation and time commitment that comes with serving on Millburn School District's Board of Education and promise you that I will diligently serve all members of this great community to uphold its standards and, more importantly, I will investigate all avenues which allow us to improve the educational system we have established for each and every student in our community.
Thank you for your consideration and your vote!
