LONGMEADOW – Kerrin Morrin has announced that she is running for Longmeadow School Committee in the upcoming June 13 election.
Morrin has an undergraduate degree from Boston College in Elementary and Special Education. She continued on at BC and received her law degree and Master of Education Administration, focusing on public interest law and education policy.
While in law school she interned at the Disability Law Center in Boston as well as the United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. Upon graduation, Morrin worked as a special education teacher in an elementary school outside of Washington, D.C.
“I felt that in order to have a deeper understanding of education, I first needed to be on the front lines, in the classroom,” said Morrin.
From there, she went on to work as a compliance officer at the Massachusetts Department of Education responsible for overseeing private special education schools that receive public funding.
Most recently, she has been working as a stay-at-home mom, raising her three children, Nate, 12, Noah, 9, and Cecelia, 4.
Morrin believes that her knowledge and experience can add unique insights into School Committee discussions.
“I have seen education from the classroom, the government and as a parent and I believe that this depth of knowledge and well-rounded view of education can provide a balanced perspective to the School Committee.”
Morrin lives in Longmeadow with her husband Doug and their three children. She has been a resident of Longmeadow for nearly 10 years and will continue to be part of the Longmeadow School system for the next 14 years.
“I can promise you that I will work hard to ensure that all our children receive the best education possible,” said Morrin.
