Bailey PTA Board 2018-2019

President: Christine Roban (parent)



About Christine:  I am a busy mom to 2 amazing, funny and entertaining children here at Bailey.  I joined the PTA 2 years ago and helped out with a few events here and there but my pride and joy is being the chair for the TWINS event which I love organizing!  I am very excited to take on the role as PTA President this year as I truly enjoy helping out where I can with the teachers and the students.  I believe this year will be a great year for not only myself but the new board as well! When I'm not helping with the PTA,  I work part time for a realty office and also PT as a manager/server at a local restaurant.  I like to watch movies with my family, find new fun activities/events around town, concerts, reading and explore new parks in the area.  I enjoy watching my kids in their sports the most as it's fun watching them grow and seeing what they're capable of.  I feel very fortunate with the opportunities I've been given and only want to help give back where I can to those who have helped my children grow!
