Amy D'Amaddio


RHAM Board of Education

 

 

 

 

"My name is Amy D'Amaddio and I am running for re-election to the RHAM Board of Education as a representative from Hebron."

 


I, along with my husband Darin, have lived in Hebron for over 22 years. Together we have three children, two of whom are recent RHAM High School graduates, and our third, a current RHAM High School junior.  

I am a retired juvenile probation officer of over twenty years, and currently hold positions as a tutor at a neighboring high school and as the coordinator of a juvenile justice parent/service provider collaborative serving the Hartford region.

I was raised in Connecticut. My mother, a career special/regular education teacher, my father, a master electrician and farmer, both of whom placed a high value on formal and informal education during my time growing up on our family farm.

It is due in large part to the lessons learned in my upbringing that lead to my passion for serving my community and high quality education for all students. 

This passion has lead me to act as a pro-bono educational advocate for student's rights across many districts in our state, and to volunteer countless hours as a RHAM board member, pushing for the highest possible educational experience for our students in the RHAM school district. 

 

When the voters of Hebron first elected me to the RHAM Board of Education, I put my passion for education into action and energy for change, forming relationships and coalitions with other board members and stakeholders to bolster my efforts for progressive change.  It has been a long, sometimes bumpy road, but over the past seven years, you have seen not only a change to a more open-minded administration, but also a cultural shift at RHAM toward educating the student holistically. This means your children not only receive a high quality education that they need to thrive in a competitive post high school environment; but as part of this shift, students are given the tools and strategies to navigate their own internal emotional world and that of others. 


This shift is just coming to the fore at RHAM and is but one of the many accomplishments I have been part of during my seven years on the RHAM Board of Education. With your support, I would like to continue to utilize the relationships and coalitions I have built for the continued benefit and service of our students.
