The majority of my teaching career has been spent teaching life science to high school students in the Enfield School District. I have also spent time as a department chair, a middle school teacher, a clinical educator for undergraduate students at Boston College and a lab instructor at Northeastern University.
I have spent the past sixteen months as a member of the Suffield BOE. During this time of transition, I am proud of all we have accomplished. Our new administrative team is made up of seasoned educators with notable track records. We hired key central office staff that continues to move our district forward and provide our students with the education they deserve, as we strive to meet our newly developed BOE goals.
Why Jamie is running for the BOE:
I want to continue to serve on the Board of Education because it is an opportunity for me to use my knowledge and expertise to give back to our community. Our school district is full of talented and devoted teachers and administrators. During my short time on the BOE, we have been in a period of transition and rebuilding. While I enjoyed the challenge of fostering stability in our schools over this past year, I now want to delve deeper into how we can help our administrators and teachers provide the best opportunities for our students to grow and improve their educational outcomes.
