Other facts

I have worked in the field of education for 15 years, as a founding partner and principal of LearnQuest, a high-end information technology and business skills training company. LearnQuest is a pioneer in utilizing multiple learning approaches to deliver the most effective training. While at LearnQuest, I have had the opportunity to directly manage all aspects of education delivery, from leading and evaluating teachers, to designing and developing curriculum that utilizes industry best practices in instructional design and technology to accomplish the best possible results in the classroom. I would like to bring my experience in the private sector to making a difference in the public sector.

I come from a family of educators and entrepreneurs. Both my mother and father were teachers before they started DPT Business School, a vocational school in Northeast Philadelphia. I spent my early adulthood teaching at their school, and learning about both education and business.

I settled in Moorestown in 2006 with my wife, Janna, who is a veterinarian, largely because of the reputation of the schools and the wonderful sense of small-town community. I have three young children, the oldest in , and three golden retrievers.

If elected to the school board, I will have two primary areas of focus: I will work to improve the quality of education in this town through the use of technology and instructional design best practices and advances. Secondly, I will be a conservative steward of your tax dollars and a strong advocate for the taxpayers of Moorestown.

The only information here is the lack of information. Rob, did he not respond to your request for information? If so, that's worth knowing. With the family business in learning, it would be an interesting perspective to have around....if he has the time to commit and isn't just looking for an education credential to go with his MBA.
Dimitri Schneiberg September 14, 2012 at 11:25 AM
Townie, please read about my views on the issues at www.dimitrischneiberg.com. You'll find me to be a fiscal conservative and a strong advocate for the taxpayers in Moorestown. With a 15 year background in education in the private sector, I have ideas to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the district, through the increased use of technology in the classroom, eliminating redundancy and waste through shared services and outsourcing, and utilizing best practices in instructional design and development.

Thanks for the link...will take a look later.

Saw website dimitri.. Ok you have my vote! I won't vote for Weinstein or swindin sound liberal. I'll consider riccolo, moye, maybe Pugh .
Franklin Dinaglio September 14, 2012 at 01:18 PM
Big Times - That is some pretty savvy decision making skills. Yeah, don't vote for Sawin; why would we want a former college professor and college admissions expert on our school board?!? Why consider actual qualifications? Ridiculous! Let's only pick candidates that will pick fights and bully the teachers union, because that's worked so well for the state and this township. Absolutely ridiculous!
Rob Scott (Editor) September 14, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Townie, I've added new information. For some reason, not all of the information Schneiberg included made it in the first time. I don't know why. Probably just a glitch. It's there now.
Big times September 14, 2012 at 02:12 PM
Wow frank you sound angry. I was just stating my opinions not going after people or unions or whatever you were fuming about. If I want to pick conservative or conservative sounding individuals for the BOE then that that. If others agree the same way great.

Did you see Mr Pugh's website? I was very surprised how nice it looked and gave some very good information. I'll give you the website just in case you didn't see it: www.pughforboe.com

Go Dimitri Go! Good website!
Donnie September 14, 2012 at 04:45 PM
Hey dimitri, elephant, has the republican club or party endorsed your candidacy for boe? Since I like what I see, and will vote for Dimitri Scneibergs, who else could we consider since we have three votes? First I will say neither will Not vote for Weinstein or Savin, like mr times I too agree they sound liberal and are democrat. Any thoughts between Moye, Ricollo, and Pugh?
Dimitri Schneiberg September 14, 2012 at 05:51 PM
Hi Donnie, Since BOE is a non-partisan election, there isn't a formal endorsement from any party. I can tell you that, in addition to being a registered Republican, I'm also on the Executive Board of the Moorestown Republican Club. That being said, I'm hoping to garner bi-partisan support for my candidacy based on my stance on the issues (www.dimitrischneiberg.com). Whether Republican or Democrat, I would hope that my candidacy resonates with folks that can appreciate somebody with private sector experience take a critical but constructive look at what we spend on education and the results we're getting. As far as other candidates, I'm only just learning many of their positions on the issues. I think we'll all learn more about one another as the campaign continues and particularly during the Meet the Candidates night.
Bobby29 September 14, 2012 at 06:07 PM
Donnie, I'm sure you've seen my thoughts on Pugh on other candidate topics. I really like him and think he would be a fantastic fit for the Board of Education. He has a very impressive resume from what I have read about him. He serves on a NJ state Education panel, I think that is very impressive. He has worked for the state and homeland security I believe. I think he would be a fantastic fit! That's just me.
Bobby29 September 14, 2012 at 10:06 PM
MHS Alumnus, I am very open to supporting Mr. Pugh as he is the only one to have secure my vote so far. I really want people to know that i think he would be a great fit. I also think I should take a compliment that I sound like a campaign manager! LOL! Thanks! (and yes I'm going to keep cheering for him!)

Dimitri states that he has experience in “..leading and evaluating teachers, to designing and developing curriculum that utilizes industry best practices in instructional design and technology to accomplish the best possible results in the classroom.” The private education system, niche and otherwise, have a greater success than public education and Dimitri has excellent experience in that field. Since he owns the company, he certainly has a compelling need to provide quality education at competitive costs. He is a one man BOE. I particularly like the “evaluating teachers” part since all we hear from the union is that it can’t be done ! Looks like a good choice for BOE
Spokesperson September 15, 2012 at 01:09 AM
Great comments Pete! Spread the word To vote for Dimitri Schneiberg for BOE. For those who what to help, contact him at his website www.dimitrischneiberg.com Only 50 days left.

@Dmitri- Would you support this pledge for pension reform? http://www.njtanews.blogspot.com/2012/09/sign-pledge-for-fairer-pension-system.html
Ed Nice September 15, 2012 at 06:27 PM
No it wouldn't !!!! And that's not directed at Dimitri! Pete and his 20 or more screen names ....... Yeah I need that gamester sitting on town council!
Pete September 16, 2012 at 12:30 AM
The NJTA has the right idea. Be fair to those who in current plans but move new hires to a 401k type plan.
Dimitri Schneiberg September 16, 2012 at 02:03 AM
The Governor has made some progress this year with pension reform, but there's definitely a lot more that needs to be done. I agree with the NJTA that we need to eliminate the defined benefit style pension for public employees. It is an unsustainable ponzi scheme. We need to have a defined contribution (401K) system just like the vast majority of private sector jobs. I agree with Pete that we need to make accommodations for those in the current plans that have counted on the promises of these benefits. Unfortunately this is a state legislative issue that we don't have much control over at the local level.
Pete September 16, 2012 at 02:09 PM
We do have some control at the local level by requiring employees to contribute to pension and medical insurance premiums. It's a negotiation issue.
