While volunteering within the school such as the school PTA and as a PTA board member, I have learned that the relationship building is essential in our community to engage the lives of not only our students, but also the parents/guardians and their families. Born and raised in a bilingual community has given me the opportunity to see, feel, and experience the accomplishments of student growth and involvement and have an emotional connection to families and their backgrounds. Overall, this allows me an opportunity to share my perspectives and my firsthand knowledge in a team of individuals who work to help shape the lives of our future: the students. It is important to me to be able to be a voice for all stakeholders in our District 44 education; I am open to have discussions and find the resources to aide our educational system, students, and their families.
Basic Beliefs Aligned with the D44 Mission Statement:
Each student and their families are different and unique in their own way and we share the fact that we have a relationship around education and the opportunities that can present themselves. It is important to work together and help build upon Academics and its connection to SEL. Practicing the principles of responsibility, integrity and equity will be an integral piece of supporting District 44’s Mission and our community.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal/Social Justice from Lewis University. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Concordia University. I also received a certificate in Human Resources and Accounting from College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, IL
I am the Owner of APG Security Services Inc, a family owned and operated business offering Executive Protection, Investigations, Special Events, and Risk Assessment that is based out of Lombard, IL.
I have lived in Lombard for a total of 15 years. Anthony Jr. (my 9-year-old son) and I belong to the Madison School family where he will be entering 5th grade.
I am excited to be a part of a team as a board member with Lombard Elementary School District 44. I intend to share my knowledge and experiences to support the overall combined efforts within our community and our children’s education.
