Tina Bojanowski has the experience and education to work in a Fortune 500 company with her MBA, or teach at the university level with her Ph.D. Instead, Tina’s passion for service led her to the elementary school classroom, where she teaches special education. Tina has spent years helping students discover and harness their own strengths so they can overcome tremendous challenges and reach their full human potential. Tina hopes to bring her energy, advocacy, experience and dedication to serve the families of the 32nd district in Frankfort.
Tina is a certified special education teacher who works with students who have learning and behavioral disorders. Some struggle with autism and other medical conditions, while others have been through traumatic events that impact their learning. Tina treats each student with respect and compassion, while also communicating clear expectations to her kids and helping them find the tools to meet them. She’s also a fierce advocate for her students and their families, doing all she can to be sure parents have the information and resources they need to raise their kids. As a special education teacher, she has to listen and lead in a way that’s fair to all. She also has to be highly organized, clear of purpose, relentlessly positive and thick-skinned – exactly the qualities that will make her an outstanding representative in Frankfort.
Tina spent 29 years as a manager and head coach with Kentucky Gymnastics Academy. She helped hundreds of young athletes develop the physical skills and winning attitude that earned trophies in the gym and success in the classroom and the workforce. She also organized statewide competitions and served for five years as State Chairman for USA Gymnastics Kentucky.
Tina is a proud mother of three, Michael, Maria, and Brandon, who was diagnosed with autism at age two. Providing her son with the medical care he needed was a tremendous struggle for Tina and her family. Today, while all three kids are now young adults, Tina’s experience informs her belief that the government and private sector have to work together to ensure that everyone who needs health care can access it affordably.
Tina received her Ph.D. in Education from Bellarmine University in2017, Master of Arts in Teaching from Bellarmine University in 2009, Master of Business Administration from the University of Louisville in 1991, and a Bachelor of Science in Management from University of Louisville in 1986.
