Amy and Doug Aiello met at the University of Delaware. Doug was majoring in biology, and Amy in Education. Amy is the Executive Director of The Graduate School at Montclair State University. After she received her Bachelor’s in Education, she later earned a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Montclair State University. In addition to his Bachelor’s in Computer Science and Biology, Doug received a Master’s in Education from Rutgers University. Doug is now a 7th grade science teacher in Edison. Their twins Jack and Sydney were born in 2005, and now attend 1st grade in Verona.
The Aiello family has been attending FCC since September. They had been looking for a local church, but wanted one that would be progressive and inclusive. One day when they were visiting the Montclair Public Library, they noticed the rainbow flag at FCC. In Amy’s words, she thought, “Wow, I didn’t know a church could do that!” Their interest piqued, they checked out our website and soon began attending services. They quickly became very involved, with Jack and Sydney participating in the Christmas Pageant and Amy working behind the scenes. It’s been a joy having Jack and Sydney in our Sunday School, and the Aiello family has made many new friends already.
