PA President- Angel Vail
My name is Angel Vail and my daughter is in the Dual Language Pre-K. I was born and raised in Queens and have lived in Woodside for the past 17 years. I am a single parent, of Cuban and Irish heritage, and speak Spanish. I support our LGBTQ+ community, our families of all backgrounds, all income levels, and all family structures. I have a Bachelor's in Child Development and now work on the financial / project management side of youth nonprofits. When COVID isn't around, I spend a lot of time with local theatres - on stage and back stage (and building the stage!) I would love to get as many parents active in the PTA as possible - let me know what you would like to do!
PA Secretary- Richard Stein
I'm the father of two wonderful children. The older one started Pre-K this year at PS 398Q and the younger one was born on the first day of school which made for a very exciting start to the school year! By day I'm a software engineer currently working on Disney+. In my spare time I enjoy ice hockey, music, and visiting Queens' many cultural offerings including the zoo, botanical gardens, and the Hall of Science.
PA Treasurer- Lenny Olsson
My name is Lenny Olsson and I have a daughter in the first grade dual language class. I am a native New Yorker born and have lived in Queens since I was two years old. I'm a proud graduate of the CUNY system having attended LaGuardia Community College and Hunter College. I work in Human Resources at another CUNY college in Queens. When I'm not working I'm spending time with my family, trying to explain math to a six year old and helping to run JH SCRAPS, the community compost center located one block away from school. With your help, we can make this the best school for all our kids.
