Our mission is focused on effective family and community engagement: to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We lead EVES PTA using the following strategies:
Strive to be Inclusive, Integrated, Individualized & Impactful in all of our projects.
Welcome all community members in a way that values their unique strengths, abilities and interests. Create inclusive environments by embracing and valuing diverse perspectives and building intentional, authentic relationships.
Communicate effectively by listening and deeply understanding the perspectives of our community members; by offering an individualized experience by communicating frequently and through a variety of methods, including personalized outreach; and by using feedback to create programs tailored to families interests and needs.
Focus on student success by planning PTA programs that are integrated connected and aligned with the broader education system to support student achievement and well-being.
Identify and advocate for specific school improvements.
Serve as a resource for parents, helping them navigate the school and community and speak up for our students' unique needs. Create a lasting impact by providing opportunities for families to develop knowledge and skills that will enhance their children's educational experiences.
Work like a team by sharing power and growing the volunteer pool with different perspectives; resolving conflicts in a positive, productive way; and showing children by example how teamwork can make their world a better place.
Collaborate with outside organizations or companies and provide a critical link between families, the school and the community. PTA leaders are the champions of school community and pride.
I'm formerly a U.S. Air Force Airborne Reconnaissance Analyst and currently a Systems Engineer for a contracting company. I have 3 children, one of whom is a rising EVES 4th grader, and a recipient of Special Education and Advanced Academics. I love children, animals, crafts, learning new things, and serving my community, and I thank you for the opportunity to serve ours.
I'm a government IT contractor, familiar with contract and financial management. I have kids in the fifth and third grades and we love Eagle View! When I'm not working or parenting, I enjoy lots of dessert, karaoke, and right now, Naruto (a Japanese ninja anime).

VP of ADVOCACY
An Indiana native, I grew up in the DMV which has given me a unique blend of strength and insight that allows me to relate to a wide range of people. I best utilize these skills in the many roles I play as part of the Administration of the Gathering at Forestville, an Executive Assistant in the political sector, a mentor, a counselor, a highschool basketball coach, and a life-skills instructor for an at-risk youth program (where I get to combine my passion for giving back to our future leaders and advocating for the underprivileged and the "seemingly" voiceless). I am committed to advocating for families in any capacity I can, which further strengthens and supports EVES.
VP of PROGRAMS
My name is Maria Nogales. I am from Bolivia and I am bilingual. I am a mother of two boys, a preschooler and a 5th Grader. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Research Master's Social Sciences. I work at 2 FCPS elementary schools as a Family Liaison, one of my passions is to help and build cooperative working relationships between families, school and the community. I love traveling, outdoors, audiobooks, and spending time with my family.
VP of FUNDRAISING
I am the mother of a 1st grader at Eagle View. I am excited to combine fundraising with community building at Eagle View. I have multiple years of business development experience via proposal development/management that I hope to apply to fundraising success for our school.
