PTA Executive Board Candidates
 
President - Maria Schwab
I am a musican and retired music teacher (DOE Public schools). I have 3 children, the youngest a sophomore at Ft Hamilton HS. I have worked in various organizations in leadership roles (president of the Music Educator Association of NYC, zone representative for the NYS School Music Association) and as a volunteer. I have served on the Ft Hamilton PTA for two years as the recording secretary, and on the St Francis Home/School Association for 7 years (also recording secretary, and "general volunteer"). As our schools slowly return to "normalcy" (or a new normal), I would like to, with the PTA executive board, create more opportunities for parents, teachers and students to interact together, sponsor social activites for students, and promote and support our school and its various programs/academies. We, as an executive board, need to be a positive partnership between our parents and our school.
 
President - Tamara Stern
After over 8+ years of being part of the PTA in other schools, I wanted to step forward once again to help my child’s school. This year we have been able to establish a better relationship with the staff and help increase parent engagement. It has been a struggle this year as our children have gotten back into the building but we have pushed through and still been able to help the many families that we have. For the first time, we were able to reach our membership donation goals which has been wonderful and shows us that parents want to be involved. I want us to continue engaging and advocating for our families because their children are what makes Fort Hamilton, the school it is. I will work at making sure there is more transparency in all the PTA does. As an active member of my community, I will continue to bring my many resources and contacts to fort Hamilton in order to better our school.

Tamara Stern
I am running to be more involved in my child’s school. As a high school parent, these years are where our kids really come into their own and learn what they need to in order to forge a path to the future. These years are important and as a parent, I want to know that my child’s school is doing everything to help all of our students succeed and become functioning members of society in whatever they choose to do.
