Bailey PTA Board 2019-2020
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 wherve 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!

About Debbie: I am a mom to two amazing daughter's - one who is in Mrs Falconer's first grade class and a very rambunctious 18 month old. This is my first year on the PTA and I am excited to be a co-treasurer with Andrea this year. My day job as an assistant controller at a marketing firm in St Paul cultivates my love of accounting.
In my 'free' time I love spending time with my wife and kids in and around all that Woodbury has to offer. I also play hockey in the winters in an adult women's league.
Our family loves to participate in the Bailey community nights at Culver's and Wendy's - if you see me be sure to come say hi and introduce yourself.
