What does it matter? If you really are a certified teacher you should know that you dont need to be certified to teach preschool or private school. I have a doctorate, I am by law allowed to teach in a private school without certification. A preschool is a PRIVATE SCHOOL. If you have ever seen Annmarie teach you would know that she is a great teacher and educator whether certified or not. Just because you have a piece of paper saying you are certified doesnt mean you are great at your job. If Annmarie is in fact uncertified as you say, I would gladly take her over half the idiot teachers I have had in my looooooooooong education. I have had A LOT of teachers in my time and even though they were certified some of them were total morons.
Hence the by-product. Say no more. Explains a lot!

The answer is YES it IS morally acceptable. This is a SMALL town. I know almost everyone in this town and Annmarie knows more people than I do. The fact is she did the right thing 5 years ago by removing herself from West Islips South Shore location when she became a board member. Again, she hasnt been involved in the running of the West Islip location in YEARS. Now, I get how it looks bad, but again, the context here is a SMALL TOWN not the entire country or even Manhattan. This is a small town where most people know each other and AGAIN the woman stands to earn not one cent from this deal. NOT A PENNY. So there is no conflict.

Jessica, she is a certified teacher. My post above was taken directly from the NYS data base which anyone can. Access through google. As indicated, she received a permanent certificate in 1995. What the circus of idiots here were trying to prove was that she falsely stated and portrayed herself as holding a license. That of course is false, she is properly certified. Let me ask you, as a lawyer, don't you think some of what is being written here and alleged is bordering on defamation of character? Insinuating she is lying about her credentials or "getting cars from Atlantic auto" my favorite one, to date, don't you thnk it is character assassination?

Not libel, she's a public figure. It comes with the territory. I guess everyone should just roll over and not question anything public officials might be up to. Were you born yesterday?

No, it doesn't come with the territory. You are Questioning her integrity, her moral compass, her honesty, and accusing her of taking a bribe from Atlantic auto. That's way beyond the territory, with absolutely no shred of evidence. I would think that those allegations could potentially have a negative effect on her professional life, as well as her business. I am not a lawyer, but one might be asked anyway.

Once again the all knowing jessica horvath has spoken!!! You must have a very busy social life if you know "almost everyone" of the 30k or so people who live here. And annmarie knows even more! How do you know she is not making money from this deal? How can you state such a thing unequivocally? Unless of course you are her "baghdad bob" and she is feeding you info. She does not even have to be esrning money from this deal for there to be a conflict. If she cast votes for the board for things such as putting in a new playground at westbrook with an eye to the future with her partner/ former partner moving into a closed elementary school, then there is a conflict. There is also a conflict if she cast votes on any topic based on her/ her friends business being in town and how it affects that business. You need to clear the fog in your head jessica and realize that people such as myself simply want to know the details behind this deal. You do not not know all of he facts behind this deal either.

I have to say I agree with one part of your post. That is, if you want the answers to these questions you should seek the people who really know the answers. You will not find those people here. You could:

A. Visit the superintendent during his open office hours
B. call Annmarie and ask her to her face
C. Attend the next boe meeting and ask your questions there.

It's quite simple.

Don't you dare lie and say that I was accusing her of accepting a deal from Atlantic Auto Mall, that's never been my issue. I think you need to do a little homework. Public figures are held to a higher accountability. They know full well before they go into positions of power and decision making, that they will be scrutinized, put under a microscope and challenged by the electorate.
Having a business and keeping relationships healthy and strong is up to the person who holds the office. What you need to do is read and find out how public figures are always challenged, and good thing, because of that, many have been taken down from their high horses and brought to justice.

If there is no wrong doing, and everything, when all is said and done, is on the up and up, the constituency will be more confident. But an elected official can't cry about their business or their reputation while being in control of the reigns of power, while sitting in a position of power and wearing all these fun and powerful hats. Last time I looked we are still living in a free Republic, am I right?

We have every right to question an elected officials integrity, moral compass, and honesty. What kind of blind follower are you? You don't have any shred of evidence that can absolutely say nothing crooked was/ is being done here as well. You may just want to roll over and pull the covers over your head but many of us don't. This deal smells rotten. It may very well not be, but right now it sure smells that way. Many of us just want to know the details of this deal. We have a right to know as westbrook is a building our taxes pay for. As for the "bribe" you allude to, the poster just asked a question if it was a coincidence. No one accused her of taking a bribe except for you in your post.

Yes you are right she announced the partnership was dissolved on Jan 2, 2013 and it is true. But She hasnt been working or involved with the management of West Islip South Shore in about 5 years.

B. wouldn't calling her be asking her to her ear?
C. you don't get correct answrs all the time at boe meetings
D. what does a teaching certificate have to do w/the boe?
E. if the wbrk/preschool deal looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. The duck can say it's not a duck all it wants. It's still a duck.

No one claimed she was working or involved in the management of West Islip. This is about a partnership which points to a shared financial gain from their businesses. She worded her announcement this way: "we have decided to move foward independently, each of us taking one of our two schools."
She said OUR two schools.

What I have learned is that people are mean. Really really mean. Too many of you mean people are born with an extra mean gene. Mean opinions from mean people. What does it all mean when the meanies act all mean. It means that that the meanies are taking over and many mean people will start acting meaner. Meaness is so mean.

Some people are manipulators. When the manipulators get caught manipulating, they cry and point fingers that everyone is so mean to them.
