Victoria (Tory) Baratta was elected to the Board for Region B in 2019. She has lived in Birmingham Township with her family since 2007.
Tory has advocated for children her entire life. After graduating from Denison University in 1990, she worked for the Connecticut State Department of Education with the Beginning Educator Support and Training (BEST) program and on a grant for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. These programs focused on collaboration, mentorship, and developing the highest standards in teaching. She earned her doctorate in Educational Psychology from the University of Connecticut in 2001. She has worked as a school psychologist supporting students, partnering with parents, and developing wellness programs for classrooms in Connecticut, Ohio and Pennsylvania. She has also taught graduate and undergraduate classes as an adjunct at Widener University. In 2019, she started Navigate Parent Advisor, a parent coach and special education consulting company.
Tory has been married to her husband, Mike, since 1997. They have five children, all currently at the high school, who have attended UCFSD schools since Kindergarten. Her children have a diverse set of interests, talents, and needs and she appreciates that each has received a quality and responsive education in our district. Tory has volunteered in the classroom, in Girl Scouts, and as a URA coach over the years. She views serving on the UCFSD School Board is an opportunity to combine her personal and professional experiences to serve her community in a meaningful and impactful way.
