The board is made up of volunteer parents who each have a child or children on an IEP or 504 plan. We work together to provide other parents and families with fun community opportunities to connect with one another, educational workshops, mutual support, and special needs resources. We work hard to get answers to any questions that arise and obtain and relay accurate information when it comes to navigating your child's journey through school and beyond.
2019]2020 Methuen SEPAC Executive Board Members
President Carolyn Wilkinson I’ve lived in Methuen since 2002. I’m a single mother of 3 children including 1 with special needs who have been in Methuen Public Schools since 2005. My goal is to help special needs families get accurate information to help them understand the process of obtaining the educational services their child needs to reach their full potential.
Vice President Kerry Gaspar I have lived in Methuen with my husband Brian since 2006. We have 2 elementary-aged sons who both have special needs. They have attended Methuen public schools since they started preschool and have taken part in various special education programs. When I am not taking care of my family I work as a small animal veterinarian. My goal for the SEPAC is to continue connecting with other parents so we can share knowledge and information and also have a little fun! I want everyone to feel comfortable with the special education process so no one feels overwhelmed or intimidated.
Public Relations Christina Bartlett I've lived in Methuen for over 10 years. I'm a mom of two very active little boys! I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to keep them entertained, engaged, and let their energy out. It's my passion to share those ideas with other families. My goal on the SEPAC is to use my creativity and my past experience as a Senior Marketing Manager to help all Methuen special needs families to know we exist and that we are here to offer our support and knowledge. Parenting can be challenging enough so having a group of other parents who understand and can offer resources to help navigate this journey can truly be amazing.
Treasurer Brian Gaspar My wife Kerry and I have been residents of Methuen since 2006 and moved with the plan of starting and raising a family here. We are lucky now to have two amazing boys. I currently work in internet marketing. My goal as Treasurer is to utilize my past finance and treasury experiences to ensure that we are fiscally able to hold and sponsor the different events and fairs we hold throughout the year.
