Results will be announced no later than Monday, April 20. Thank you for taking the time to read this information and for taking the time to vote. School governance is a crucial part of being a successful charter school.

Sincerely,

Ross Montessori Board of Directors

PC Drew: Last year, I left active duty as a Marine Corps Officer and moved my family to Carbondale to start an educational technology company.  I’m passionate about leading people, technology, building new things, and fixing problems.  I am thrilled to be considered for the school board position because I believe in Montessori and want to be more involved in the future of my children’s education.  Hopefully my unique skills and experience in complex problem solving and large project planning will be valuable to the school if I am elected.

Dave Gensch:  I was raised in the Roaring Fork Valley and I am blessed to be able raise my children here. As a custom home builder my skill set and experience would be an attribute to the Board, especially during the construction of the new school.. As a business partner and project manager, I excel in working with others to achieve a unified goal.  My general construction knowledge of schedules, permits, budgets and scope of work will be an asset to Ross. We are all fortunate to call this valley our home and among the various educational opportunities that we have for our children, none resonate with such clarity for my family as Ross Montessori does.  I would be honored to contribute my service to the Board.

Ken Rosenberg: I am the proud Dad of a 2nd grader at Ross Montessori and my wife is Kara Gallagher.  We moved here from Idaho in 2013 where we both worked at the Idaho National Laboratory. My career has taken lots of turns from designing nuclear related containment systems all the way to managing nuclear related programs budgeted in excess of $25M/year. I continue to work at the INL leading a major program developing a new type of nuclear fuel for research reactors. When not banging on the computer keyboard at work,  I love to spend time with my family skiing, camping, mountain biking and watching my son play hockey.
