CHATHAM — Three candidates are running unopposed Tuesday to replace three school board members who are stepping down at the end of their terms this year while voters will decide on the $30.8 million school budget.

*** and *** 

Dawn-Marie V. Blasl is originally from Yonkers and lives in Chatham with her husband Mike and their fur-babies Daisey-Mae and Lillie-Jo. She is the mother of a son who graduated from Chatham High School in 2006.

Blasl moved to Chatham after working as a teacher and school administrator in Yonkers. She has worked in education from pre-K through college for the past 26 years.

Blasl has a bachelor’s degree in Italian/secondary education from Manhattan College and a master’s degree in educational administration from New York University.

Blasl’s career in the Yonkers public school system was highlighted when she earned the Jenkins PTA lifelong member Outstanding Educator Award while she was a secondary principal. She started as a secondary Italian teacher following many years as both an elementary and secondary principal as well as a college adjunct professor at Mercy College, supervising administrative interns and teaching many master level educational administration courses.

Blasl went on and worked for six years in the Chatham Central Schools as a kindergarten through eighth-grade English as a second language teacher and she served as co-chairwoman of the district’s Character Education Committee. While she was working in the Chatham district, Blasl was an Italian and reading adjunct college professor at Columbia-Greene Community College. In January 2012, Blasl started working at Columbia-Greene Community College as an assistant professor and chairwoman of transitional studies where she serves on many committees.

“It is all about giving back to the community,” she said. “Both my husband and I believe in the importance of this and we are involved in many community-based organizations.”

Dear John,

                I believe that Dawn’s last name is Blasi (rather than Blasl) but in any event, I believe that she is a member of the Class of 1989,
