President, Julie Luster-Roell

I have considered Delaware Township home most of my life having graduated from DTS and making lifelong friendships in the classrooms. My family and I moved to Rosemont in 2010. My daughter is in middle school. Since she began at DTS, I have served on PiE’s Board as Treasurer, Recording Secretary, VP for Fundraising, and now as President. During the day, I work at Princeton University in grant accounting. In my spare time, I treasure adventures with my daughter, spending time with friends and family, and walking along our beautiful Township roads. I look forward to working with all the volunteers at DTS and look forward to making new memories!!!

Elementary School VP, Kyla Glassner

Delaware Township is both a school and community that I have always considered home. I attended DTS from K-8, with both of my parents teaching in the school for many years. My husband and I officially moved back to the area about ten years ago. We live in Rosemont with our three boys. We currently have a ninth grader and twin fifth graders.
I was an elementary school teacher for eight years however, currently enjoy being a stay-at-home mom. The years I spent in education helped me truly understand the important role of parental support. It is both helpful and valuable to a positive educational experience.
I am excited to be on the PiE board as the VP for Elementary School programming. I will strive to find relevant and engaging assemblies to enrich our elementary school students.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or programming ideas you may have. I always look forward to working with this amazing group of volunteers to enhance our children’s education.

Middle School VP, Emy Drew

Seven years ago, my husband, Tim, and I were fortunate enough to purchase a home here in Delaware Township.  We quickly realized what a treasure this community and the Delaware Township School are.  We love watching our kids enjoy the kind of childhoods that we had– spending every waking minute outdoors, surrounded by nature,  riding bikes and playing ball with all the neighborhood kids. Being an elementary school teacher myself  in a neighboring district, I am not able to attend as many of the daytime events as I would like, but I want to be a part of my children’s school lives.  When this position opened up, I happily accepted the nomination, excited to get to know and work alongside such a devoted group of amazing parents and staff. As the PiE Vice President of Elementary Programming, I  look forward to providing assemblies and experiences that will engage and  inspire our children and enrich their educational experiences. Please feel free to reach out with any programming ideas that you may have.  I look forward to working with you all and look forward to a great year!

Fundraising VP, Dawn MacDonald

I have been a lifelong resident of Hunterdon County. Seven years ago, my husband and I were grateful our son was chosen as a choice student at Delaware Township School.  Residing in the area for so long, we always knew we wanted our children to attend the school. We now have two boys, grades 4th and 1st, in the district and are so happy we made the decision to place them at DTS. The school’s core values and town’s close-knit community is exactly what we hoped for.

I have been a Homeroom Partner for the past six years and have recently started subbing at the school. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking, gardening and spending time with family and friends. Being part of the PiE Board is very fulfilling as I enjoy finding different ways to keep our children engaged through the everchanging times.

Recording Secretary, Danielle Hartdorn

Four years ago my family was lucky enough to move to Delaware Township. We chose Delaware Township because of the sense of community and the reputation of the pre k-8 school district. We have loved watching our son, Reece, flourish in school and participate in Delaware Township sports. I am a Den Leader for Reece’s Cub Scout pack and I’ve also been a Homeroom Partner for the last two years. I have been a 4th grade teacher in Montgomery Township for over 20 years. My family enjoys hiking with our rescue dog, playing sports and traveling to see family. I have a passion for education and I am looking forward to serving on the Board.

Corresponding Secretary, Jenna Haxton

My family and I moved to Delaware Township in 2019. We immediately fell in love with the town and the people who live here.  We have two boys who are students in the school.  Bentley is in 4th grade and Oliver is in 2nd grade.  I have been a PiE Homeroom partner since my boys have started at the school and this is my first year on the Board. I am the owner of Haxton Homestead here in Delaware Township which keeps me busy but gives me the flexibility to volunteer with PiE.  In our free time our family loves to go camping and exploring what Hunterdon County has to offer.  I look forward to serving as Corresponding Secretary.

Treasurer, Cindy Russo

After living in Delaware Township for over 10 years now, I feel honored to call this hidden gem my home. I grew up across the river in Bucks County, and moved to New Jersey with my husband in 2006. Our home in Delaware Township has welcomed our two children, 5th and 2nd graders at DTS, many loving pets, and a wonderful family of friends from the community. We have been involved with many school events, sports, and activities throughout the community and I am excited to be able to give back.

I have been a high school math teacher at Bridgewater Raritan School District for 15 years. As an educator myself I understand the importance of community involvement and support. I truly believe it takes a village, and I am proud to be an integral part of the village here at DTS. I look forward to serving as treasurer on the PiE Board and continuing the spirit of community embodied in Delaware Township.
