Hello Warren Neighbors -
My name is David Brezee and thank you for allowing me to introduce myself as a candidate for the Warren Township Board of Education. It has been my honor to serve the community of Warren as a member of the Warren Township Board of Education since December of 2016. As the father of 4 current students in our district, as well as a proud Warren resident, I am seeking your vote in support of continuing my commitment to representing the best interests of our children and our community. My vision is simple: Empowering Students & Engaging Community. One can not be successful without the other.
Similar to many of the residents in Warren, the quality of the public schools weighed heavily on our family’s decision to consider Warren when we were looking to move from our previous home in 2012. Looking back, we are confident we made the absolute best choice.
I currently have twin boys in Warren Middle School, and 2 boys at Angelo L Tomaso elementary school. Since our twins’ enrollment in Kindergarten in 2013 I have attended almost every Board meeting as a community member and parent. In December 2016, I became a Board member and I’m proud to say neither my roots nor my commitment have changed. I remain committed to empowering our students while seeking input and collaborating with community on the best path to do so. I remain committed to excellence in education for our students, and represent the community and parents in this role as a Board member.
Beyond my volunteer work on the Board, I also regularly volunteer for school activities including Food Days, Trunk-Or-Treat, and end of year Field Days. In addition, I help coach sports teams within Warren through our local recreation programs.
As a Board member, I have had the honor of serving on each of the three standing committees, as well as several ad-hoc committees approved by the Board. Additionally, I proudly served as the Board’s President in 2018 and 2019. Through all of these opportunities, I have been able to closely collaborate with district administration, staff, and community members; and have spent time in each of our amazing schools getting to know our staff and their unique abilities.
Through my career experiences, I am also able to offer insights into the world of education. Currently, I am a Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at a public corporation that prides itself in serving more than 6 million students through delivery of educational content and tools that enable improved academic performance.
Previous to this role, I was employed with a Big Four consulting firm. In this role, I was a leader of a focused team that successfully worked with public and private education clients to develop technological solutions that meet their growing needs. Through these experiences and partnerships with clients focused on student success, I have a firm understanding of the direction, challenges, and interests that our educational institutions and students face today.
Outside of my employment experiences, my passion for education exists in my personal life as well. For my own formal educational achievements, I have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, an MBA in Global Management, and a Master of Science in Management Information Systems. I believe that education for our students is a lifelong process, and is achieved through both formal and informal channels. This lifelong process is built upon a strong foundation for education, and is key to the successes of our students to achieve new heights and accomplishments.
In summary, I believe my qualifications, experiences, and passion will add value as a Board member towards our district's mission to provide an outstanding educational experience to all students. My proven track record of local Board experience, applied work experiences, and my passion for education are fundamental to the value I would continue to bring to the Board, our students, and our community.
Thank you again for your time. If there are any questions you would like to ask, or continue the discussion, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to hearing from you. Together, we can maintain the high standards of the Warren Township Schools for the benefit of our students, staff, and community.
