Our town is defined by its number-one asset — our public schools. It is a core reason people choose to move to Wilton. We need to invest smartly in our schools, to achieve the entwined goals of providing the highest educational experience for our children and sustained, prosperous economic security for our town. Achieving these goals requires an expansive knowledge of how the schools work — from the classroom to the administration offices, and from the perspective of educators, parents, and most importantly, the students.
Education has always been a driving force in my life. This was instilled by my father, who came to the U.S. from post-war Greece with $50 in his shoe and used education (and his wits) to get ahead in life. This has fed my passion to support our schools and is why I have volunteered in the schools over the past 15 years, including as PTA president at Middlebrook and Wilton High School.
