Core Value Award Winner: Amy Amomatorio


Openness and honesty with all stakeholders make for both the best program outcomes and team culture. We, as an organization, must build trust with our program participants by being thoughtful, transparent, and committed to our decisions and promises.


Amy recently was promoted to Director of Education for the Strawbridge school. At the time of her promotion, Strawbridge was facing challenges that led to the program being placed on intensive monitoring by the Maryland State Department of Education. Amy has embraced all challenges set before her and has worked diligently to remedy all issues. She has been determined to change the school’s climate, provide guidance to her support staff and actively demonstrate the core values needed to improve the school. She has dedicated evenings and weekends to provide needed documentation for the state as well as providing needed professional development for her staff. Amy has demonstrated openness and honesty with all stakeholders for program outcomes as well as improving the school teams culture.

Thank you so much Amy for being so responsive and stepping up to the challenge!  Congratulations!
