About Us

Family May 21.jpg

President - Joy Luperini

I am our current president.  I have twin boys who are in 5th grade at Martin. I love being super involved in our school and am doing my best to make a difference.  I have met some of my really good friends by being involved in the PTA.  The PTA motto is "team work makes the dream work." 

Vice President; Beautification Chair - Jennifer Parra

My husband, Paulo, and I have 2 children at the Reed Road Campus in 5th & 2nd grades. We have lived in the area since 2011. I love being so involved in our schools and enjoy being a part of the team that provides a lot of fun for our students, families, and staff. I work full time in the medical field and the boys are in sports year round! I am thankful for how the PTA has enriched my life, and I hope we can continue to build a strong community within our campus.

Vice President; Staff Appreciation Chair - Melissa deBruin

My name is Melissa DeBruin.  My husband, Ted, and I have 9 year old twins. Brooklyn and Nicholas are in fourth grade at Martin. I am a K-5 STEM teacher in Barrington. This is my third year serving on the PTA and I look forward to showing our appreciation for the wonderful staff at the ECC, Chesak and Martin!

Treasurer & Media - Amanda Sevcik

Hi! I am Amanda Sevcik and this is my fifth year as the treasurer of the PTA.  I have 3 kids - my oldest daughter is a 5th grader, my son is a 3rd grader and my littlest daughter turned 2 over summer.   I am currently a stay at home mom but taking classes through MCC for my Bookkeeping Certificate and possibly my Accounting Certificate.  Prior to having our awesome kids, I was a High School Math Teacher.  I love being on the CMPTA Board and look forward to a fantastic school year!

Secretary - Sarah Tunzi

Hello, my name is Sarah Tunzi and this will be my second year as the CMPTA Secretary.  My son, Joey is a third grader at Martin elementary and we absolutely love it!  I have been married to my husband, Vince for 10 years and with him came my 24-year-old stepson, Michael.  We moved to Huntley 5 years ago and we quickly fell in love with it.  I am fortunate to be a stay at home mom which allows me to be a substitute teacher, a volunteer RE teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and of course to be secretary for CMPTA.  I was raised with my parents being very involved in their community and schools and I look forward to carrying on their commitment towards our schools and teachers in any way I can.

Hue Vuong - Membership Chair

My name is Hue (pronounced "way") Vuong and my family (Michal, Kylie, Leo and our furry family Kitty and Chocolate) and I have been living in Huntley for over 5 years now.  We moved here to be a part of the D158 school district since we were so impressed with the school.  In addition to our amazing school, we love living in Huntley and the sense of community that is present.  Our family loves to spend time together on different adventures locally and abroad.  We are very excited for another great school year with the Chesak-Martin PTA!
