Annie

I am the parent coordinator for Erie Charter School. I advocate for parents and act as a go-between for administration, teachers and parents. I help give the parent perspective to teachers and staff, raise money, create parent events, and communicate between invested parties. I also have three children that attend this school.

I have worked at Erie for 7

+ years.

I work here to help families, children, and parents be the best they can be. I come from homelessness and understand. I can encourage them in hard times and remind them that it can be done.

My long-term aspiration is to go back to school for social work or a similar route. My short term goals are to help families and to raise my children to be the best they can be.
