Effective boards are ones that listen, then craft solutions that best work for all our children. To do this you have to develop strong goals; a task I eagerly took on because I’d like to drive positive action today and into the future.

I will continue to advocate for our children at all levels of learning. One of the first meetings I asked for after joining the Board was with the Special Education team. I am thrilled that we have developed a new program this academic year that assists students in need of help in ELA and/or mathematics. I will continue to listen and strive to enhance our educational offerings, so that ALL students can be successful.

I am excited about the innovative solution (ESIP) we are implementing to address our aging infrastructure issues by taking advantage of energy savings opportunities. Ideas like this show fiscal responsibility while providing a safer school for our children.
My husband and I moved to Marlboro in 1999 because of the excellent school system in anticipation of us building a family, which we eventually did. I now have two children. My son attends Marlboro Middle School and my daughter is in her freshman year at Marlboro High School. So, you could say "I have skin in the game" both as a parent with kids in the district, as well as being a Marlboro resident.

My skill set in sales and marketing, my problem solving can-do attitude, and action oriented spirit also qualifies for me for this position. I'd like to do my part in keeping Marlboro a wonderful place to live and raise your kids, providing them with a first class education and all of opportunities that go along with that education.
I am focused on providing our children with a high-quality education and keeping our kids and teachers safe, all while protecting our taxpayers dollars by acting in a fiscally responsible way.

I wear many hats, as most of us do these days…father, husband, son, friend. and neighbor. I am so excited and proud to be running again for a seat on the Marlboro Board of Education. I am very much looking forward to continuing to advocate for all the students, parents, and staff.
During my time on the board, I am proud of my many accomplishments including, but not limited to, the spotlight on emotional, social, and behavioral health which consists of a district wide initiative. Furthermore, being instrumental on the implementation of various safety and security measures for our children, teachers, and families. Additionally, spearheading the improvement of the district’s website to enhance communication and productivity.
My wife and I have lived in Marlboro for the past 15 years and I am a proud father of 4 children, all of whom have either graduated or are currently enrolled in the district. With my active schedule, I have always found time to serve the community, not only by volunteering my time as a Board member, but also serving as a coach for my children, as well the children of Marlboro.

I am passionate about the high-quality educational program Marlboro provides to all our children and with your support, I am hopeful to continue being an integral member of the Board of Education. Thank you for your continued support.

The reputation of the Marlboro Township Public Schools was a key factor in our decision to raise our children here. I would like to try to help keep it this way.
As both a mother of two Marlboro Elementary students, in first and fifth grade, and a certified teacher, I feel I will bring a variety of knowledge to the Board of Education. I’ve actively participated in the Marlboro schools on many different levels; as a PTO member, a parent, a substitute teacher (both long term and per diem), substitute instructional aide, and substitute secretary. I am familiar with the challenges of meeting the needs of all types of learners as well as keeping them safe and feeling protected.
The reputation of the Marlboro Township Public Schools was a key factor in our decision to raise our children here. While the security in our schools is above and beyond other surrounding towns with our security officers and police officers, I would like to see more electronic and cyber security too. I would love to make sure our security gets better as the internet advances. Our Educators are amazing with keeping current in their knowledge of all the changes in Education. I am lucky I have had the opportunity to work with such amazing, dedicated teachers and staff members. As a Board member I will continue to have an active presence in the schools.
