Hello PCCN Community! I'm Madeline Goodman and I serve as the President on the Board of Directors here at PCCN. This is my second year as President and my fourth year being a part of the pre-school- my son and daughter attended over the past three years and PCCN became a home to us.
I am a stay/work at home mama to Liam and Gwendolyn. My husband, Alex, and I both work for the WMU Athletic Department- we are WMU alums (Go Broncos!) and have called Kalamazoo home since we met on our first day moving in Freshman year. Our family also includes our two furry babes, Lucius, who lives up to his Harry Potter namesake, and Hobey, our not-so-smart but loveable hound.
While I don't have any little learners at PCCN this year, I am excited to continue the journey with Mrs. Warren, Mrs. Meden and the rest of the Board and remain a part of the PCCN family. We will still be joining in activities and events and I cannot wait to meet new families and see old friends!
Hello everyone! My name is Amanda Bobalik and I am serving as the PCCN executive board Secretary this year. My 7 year old twins Annabelle and Augustus previously attended PCCN, so I’m very excited for this opportunity to give back to this awesome community. In addition to being a parent, my husband Alan and I are both educators. He currently teaches at Bloomingdale high school, whereas I’ve yet to return to the classroom since staying home with my twins. I previously taught kindergarten, first, and second grade, and am a reading specialist. I currently work at an accounting firm doing administrative tasks, which provides me the flexibility I need for my kids. In my free time I love to spend time outside (this picture is from our summer trip to Oregon, which included a stop at Crater Lake National Park), dance, read, and play any kind of trivia or board game.
The absolute best thing about PCCN is the sense of community it encourages, so I’m really looking forward to meeting your families at our upcoming parent orientation and other school-wide events.
