It's a great day to be a Bengal. That’s not just a slogan to me. It's been a great 30+ years that I've been a Bloomfield Bengal and another three years serving the wonderful community I was educated in. The Bloomfield Board of Education prides itself on "tradition". I couldn't be more proud to be a resident of a town that celebrates diversity and prioritizes education for its children.
Serving on the board these past three years has been a rewarding experience. Working with my fellow board members and the administration, faculty and staff of all the Bloomfield Public Schools as we helped open the Early Childhood Center at Forest Glen, hired new staff, purchased and implemented new technologies and resources, started the 1:1 initiative at BMS and brought the child study team back in house has given me a great sense of accomplishment and pride. These are only a few of our accomplishments together over the past 3 years.
There's an African Proverb that says "if you want to go fast go alone and if you want to go far go together". Being a resident of Bloomfield, a graduate of Bloomfield Public Schools and an educator for 16 years I respect the importance of working with all stakeholders. I have and will continue to make it my priority to speak to and consult with not only my colleagues but employees, parents, community members and organizations but most importantly our students.
My goal is to do my best to help our team continue to move Bloomfield Schools forward and offer the best education to our diverse student body. When you walk into the voting booth on November 8th please keep in mind the team of people putting the educational needs of our students first.
