Maria Naughton, Board of Education

My husband, Bob and I have lived in New Canaan since 2002, and have four children who have benefited from our school system.

After working at GE Capital, I spent 18 years in education. I worked as both teacher and consultant, working in many capacities, with students, teachers and administrators at all levels in school systems around Fairfield County. I received a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Sacred Heart University in 1995, and continued with extensive graduate coursework in Instructional Technology and Educational Leadership. I have a K-8 teaching endorsement and certification as an Intermediate Administrator, allowing me to hold any administrative positions below that of a School Superintendent.
