Ethel Grant

Board of Education Vice Chair

The goal of my term is to listen and bring to the table concerns of parents about their children: that they are loved, respected and are receiving a fair education.  I would also like to see more improvement in our Math scores.  Along with the Board, I will continue to monitor our progress and support our Superintendent and professionals tasked with bringing our program along.  I also hope to be seen as a role model for diversity in education in our community.  I hope that I can enlighten someone out there (future teachers and citizens) to see that Naugatuck is a culturally diverse community who is welcoming and wanting them to bring and share their talents to help make Naugatuck even greater.
