2020 - 2021 PTA Board Members

Our PTA board is made up of nine voting members, with two members from HHES. We plan and execute PTA sponsored events like Fall Festival. We advocate for your children to the school and school board. We support our teachers and staff by funding development opportunities, appreciation events and teacher wishlists. While the board is the governing body, our PTA volunteers are amazing and help our initiatives become a reality.

Melissa Neubauer

PTA President

This is my 5th year on the PTA Board, first year as President. I'm looking forward to the year ahead and making a difference within the Huntley Hills community. When not volunteering with the PTA, I work in media research, and enjoy reading, running, and cheering on my two kids (5 and 9) in their various activities.

This is my eighth year in education (five of those years being at Huntley Hills), and my first year serving on the PTA Board. This year I am teaching traditional third grade Language Arts and Social Studies, and in the past I have taught Pre-K, first grade and second grade. I am also the PBIS coach for our school. I am very excited to work with the PTA in order to best serve the Huntley Hills students and community. In my free time I love to read, go to the movies, spend time with my niece and three nephews, and play with my two cats (Raven and Bella). 

Deborah Hakes Roney

PTA Fundraising Chair / VP

I love finding resources to help the students and staff of HHES succeed. In my second year on the PTA board, I will continue to apply for more grants and build more local business relationships in order to secure funding for our great neighborhood school. My career has focused on nonprofit communications, media relations, and fundraising. In my free time, I love to find adventures with my kindergartener and first grader, run, take photos and travel.

Jennifer Mesa

Communications VP

This is my third year on the PTA board, and I previously served as the programs lead organizing events and programs for the PTA. I have three children ages 8, 5 and 1. When I'm not sending you emails or updating the website I'm writing and designing strategies for employee communications at work. I love to craft, create and bake and spend time with my family.

I am so grateful to be a part of the HHES family! I enjoyed getting to know our sweet school community through volunteering and running the book fair last year. I am excited to officially join the PTA this year as Treasurer. I have been a preschool teacher for 10 years; and assisted with book keeping & accounting for my husband’s restaurants this past year. I am eager to begin another great school year with my third and first graders!

Programs Coordinator

This is my second year on the PTA board. I love working with all the families to ensure that our children have some fun while also helping to secure funds for the classrooms! When I'm not busy scheduling fun events for HHES, I love spending time with my family enjoying the outdoors, running and playing tennis.  I am excited for the new school year and to have both my children at HHES in Pre-K and first grade.

Darah McGuire

Volunteer Coordinator

I enjoyed the time I spent at HHES last year as a volunteer, and I am hoping to help make volunteering at our school simple and impactful. I look forward to meeting those of you who can serve in some way to support our community. In this season of life I can usually be found at home with my three young children coloring, reading books, cooking, and trying to bring some order to our yard!
