Along with a budget vote on May 16, there will be a vote for a new trustee for the Baldwin Board of Education.
Karyn Reid, current board trustee, will be leaving the board at the end of this school year. With one vacant spot, Pamela Green, 53, will be running unopposed. The election is by seat and the term length for the new trustee will be three years from July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2026.
Green has been an educator for over 20 years with an administrative certification. “As an educator for over 20 years, I have directly and effectively collaborated with administrators, educators, parents, and community stakeholders to help ensure that all students have equitable access to the tools needed to reach their full potential,” Green said. Green has a Masters of Science in Special Education from St. Johns University, and a Bachelors of Science and Sociology from Virginia Union University.
As Green is on the Nassau Region PTA, she understands the importance of providing students with equal education. “As Nassau Region PTA’s Diversity Chair, it is my unwavering belief that all children be provided with access to educational opportunities that promote multiple perspectives and respect differences regardless of their collective backgrounds,” Green said. Green plans on following through with current and future board initiatives.
“I am thrilled to be a candidate for the Baldwin Board of Education,” Green said. “As a board trustee, I am committed to elevating and supporting the existing initiatives outlined by the board. To that end, my fundamental position is to promote a high-quality educational system that delivers a rigorous and inclusive program adapted to address all student needs.”
Green is married and has four kids who are college graduates and one college undergraduate. Her kids are Sade Green from Amherst College, class of 2020, Kemi Green from George Washington University, class of 2022, Segun Green from LIU Post, class of 2023, Seun Green from St. John’s University, class of 2023, and Toyin Green from Syracuse University, class of 2026.
“The proud parent of five distinguished Baldwin School District AP Scholar graduates, I have worked relentlessly to foster an environment that honors each child’s unique assets that advances our school-community,” Green said.
