PTO Spotlight with Teacher Appreciation Breakfast Co-chair Robyn HunterFullSizeRender-6Q: Tell us about your family.A: My family is my world!  David and I have been married since 2004 (together since 1993!), and we have three incredible children.  Isabel is in 4B and loves classical ballet.  Gabi is in 3S and lives for soccer.  Our youngest is William, in 1S; he loves all sports and plays a passionate game of soccer.  We also have two cats, Harper and Maggi, who are 20 and 18 years old!  We love music, dance, sports, reading, all Holidays, NYC and Vermont, board games, spending time with our extended family and being deeply involved at Driscoll and in our larger community.Q: Tell us how you’ve been involved at Driscoll?A: My involvement at Driscoll dates back to 2008 when Isabel was in the young preschool at BEEP (which was then located at Driscoll). Throughout our 8 years at Driscoll, I have served on many committees, as room parent every year, have advocated with the Town for keeping BEEP classrooms in our public schools, have sat on the PTO Executive Board, volunteered at book fairs and spring fairs and Arts Equinox and Science Solstice, put together Auction items and always supported our teachers personally and behind the scenes.  This year I am co-chairing our Teacher Appreciation Breakfast with Kim Katz, a dear friend and partner in crime, and I look forward to many more years of doing my part!Q: Do your kids have a favorite PTO program?A: My kids love the ever popular Spring Fair, Arts Equinox and Science Solstice.  They also really like the Fall Fling and the community service events we have focused on in the past.Q: Fun Fact: What’s something we should know about you that we don’t?A: I am a very outgoing but (paradoxically?) private person.  I crave time alone and try to make sure I get that most days, along with exercise, fresh air and a tidy home!  These are essential to running a calm (yeah, right) and orderly home with three incredibly busy children and a home piano studio (I have been teaching piano lessons off and on since I was 15).  I am a huge believer in bed times, thank you notes, excellent manners and putting others first.  We work constantly on a balance between being our best and taking care of ourselves and each other.  Our family has been thrown some major curveballs in recent years, but, like every family, we pull fiercely together and try to take life as it comes.  We are so thankful to be a part of this amazing community and consider it a duty and blessing to be a part of its excellence.  Thank you!
