Eileen Carrier joined the PS8 community in 2016. Eileen thought she had retired from full-time work, but when she heard there was a need for a parent coordinator at PS8, it was a perfect fit and she had to apply.
Eileen holds bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Northeastern University and a master’s degree in Nursing from New York University. She worked for many years as a nurse and staff developer in hospitals in Boston and New York.
In 2001, Eileen’s focus shifted to parenting her twin daughters and her son. In 2005, she became a New York City public school parent. She was an active PTA member at her children’s elementary and middle schools and served as PTA president and a member of the SLT. Eileen continued to volunteer weekly at her children’s elementary school even after they graduated.
Outside of school, Eileen enjoys gardening and cooking. She likes to travel, and her family has completed a cross-country tour of the US, the UK, and Northern France. Eileen also loves to read and has an addiction to the British soap opera EastEnders.
