School Board Nominating Committee

Rob Bailey, I am married to Leah Bailey and we have raised two daughters who attended Glencoe and New Trier schools. Before becoming an at home dad, I was the VP of Sales with RR Donnelly in the southwest region. I coached with AYSO, 18 teams over 9 years. Team members were from Glencoe, Winnetka, and Wilmette. I served three consecutive terms on the Glencoe Board of Education and served two years as president. I also served three terms on the Board of the North Shore Special Education District (NSSED).

Ilya Boroditsky, My wife, two children, and I feel fortunate to live within the New Trier School district. Our family places significant emphasis on the educational system. I am committed to maintaining New Trier’s reputation as a top institution in preparing our students for higher education and the global stage. Professionally, I am a Portfolio Manager at an investment firm. I graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.

Jonathan Fox,  My most important jobs are husband and father to my two sons, one of whom has special needs.  Apart from the reputation of the schools, one of the biggest reasons we moved to Glencoe was the small-town charm and tight-knit community.  I am committed to ensuring that all of our children receive a top-tier education while recognizing the critical role that parents play in determining what is best for their families.  For a living I manage an investment fund and have also served as a Cook County election judge here in Glencoe.
