Joyce Simons was appointed to the Hoboken Board of Education in 2018 to replace a board member who had stepped down. “I have always had an interest in public education and regularly attended board meetings for several years. Education directly impacts the quality of our community and I made a commitment to be involved.”
Joyce and her husband, Don, have proudly called Hoboken home for 12 years. Their three children currently attend Wallace School. For her, the district schools are the obvious choice because, she says, “the education my children are receiving is top notch. And, importantly, they are very happy.” Her son is one year away from the Hoboken Middle School and her family looks forward to the innovative programs and challenges there.
Joyce has been an active member of the Wallace PTO, where she chairs various committees to help organize fundraising events and arrange activities for the students. In addition to being a class parent for her children each year, Joyce and her husband Don have been strong supporters of the Hoboken Public Education Foundation since its inception. Outside of school, Joyce has been the 8-and-Under program coordinator as well as a head coach for a local ice hockey program, and has served as the “cookie mom-ster” for her daughters’ Girl Scout troop.
Joyce graduated from Babson College with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing, and has experience in corporate planning and human resources. “Relationship building and business management was an integral part of my work; if elected, these are skills I can contribute to the Board,” says Joyce.
