My fellow residents of Hasbrouck Heights,
My name is Lori Cintron and I am a candidate in the upcoming School Board Election on November 5, 2019. I am a proud, lifelong resident of this great community. I am a product of our fine school system. I attended Euclid School, Franklin School, and am a graduate of Hasbrouck Heights High School. I have been married for 32 years to Pete. Our daughter, Alexa, is also a product of the Hasbrouck Heights school district. She attended Euclid School, Hasbrouck Heights Middle School and graduated from Hasbrouck Heights High School in 2012.
She went on to Rutgers University, with a double major in Psychology and Criminal Justice. She is currently in her third year of law school at New York Law School. Growing up in Hasbrouck Heights gave her the opportunity to make lifelong friends, participate in Recreation Department sports and activities, and develop the fine skills to bring her to where she is today.
For twenty-nine years, I was fortunate and honored to be an educator in the Hasbrouck Heights School District. I taught both elementary and middle school classes. I began my career in 1989 at Lincoln School. There I taught second and fourth grade. I then moved to Euclid School in 1994. I taught third, fourth and fifth grade during my eighteen years there. In 2012, I had the opportunity to become part of the Middle School. I was the sixth grade reading teacher for six years. I was a former PTA member in Lincoln, Euclid and the HHPTSA. I was active on many committees including: Professional Development Committee, I&RS, ScIP, DEAC Committee, Key Communicators, QSAC Monitoring Committee.
I was the President of the Hasbrouck Heights Education Association for eight years. During my time as President, I advocated for what was best for the students, staff, and school district collectively. I worked collaboratively with three superintendents, past and present administrative teams, Board of Education Trustees, staff and parents to strive for a positive learning environment for all students K-12. It was in 2018, that I decided to retire from education and continue on my journey as a true advocate for public education. I am currently a Board Trustee for the Hasbrouck Heights Public Library and I serve on the Hasbrouck Heights Ethics Committee.
If elected to the Hasbrouck Heights School Board, I will work to have a strong level of accountability and transparency. I will continue to advocate for public education and for our fine school system. I hope to bring forth the knowledge of what was, what is, and what can be for the Hasbrouck Heights School District.
I ask for your vote on November 5th, which will allow me the privilege to advocate for the future.
