My name is Carrie Goesel. I have two girls at Burley (Kindergarten and 2nd Grade) and work full-time at a fortune 500 P&C insurance company. Our morning commute to school is about a 20 second walk, but I know at least two other families with shorter commute times!
I recently joined FOB because I want to be an active part of the school and my children’s education. I believe that for public school to be effective for our children, parents need to be involved and support the teachers, the administration and each other. Being part of FOB has helped my family feel a stronger connection to the Burley community and I’ve gotten to know so many more great people. I am passionate about making a positive impact for current and future Burley families and FOB is a great place to do just that.
Since joining FOB in the spring, I chaired our 2016 Movie in Burley Park Night. I have a (perhaps unnatural) fondness for outdoor movie watching, so this was an obvious fit. While it was very rewarding to help raise money for Burley, the best part for me was having so many families come out and enjoy spending time together. Seeing the kids run around Burley park and all of the parents lending a helping hand and/or doling out cash for concessions really showcased the depth of this community. I’m so proud to be part of it!
