The Hoover City Council in April appointed Amy Tosney to a five-year term on the Hoover school board.

Tosney, whose term starts June 1, was an English and history teacher at Erwin High School in Jefferson County from 1993-97. She took a break to raise young children and later served as an interim librarian at Brookwood Forest Elementary in Mountain Brook, a kindergarten teacher at Hilldale Christian School in Center Point and a preschool and music teacher at Hunter Street Baptist Church.

Since 2008, she has worked with her husband, Joe, in their overhead door company called Magic City Door. She is vice president and office manager.

The Tosneys have lived in Hoover nine years and have three daughters. One is a freshman at the University of Alabama, and they also have a 16-year-old at Hoover High and an 11-year-old at Gwin Elementary.

Q: Why did you decide to apply for the school board?

A: I always thought that I would go back to teaching, and that never happened. So this is a good fit for me to still be able to work in my business and still give as much as I can to my family but also do something in education.

Q: What do you feel are the biggest issues facing the school board right now?

A: Zoning. … I think we have room for lots of houses, which is lots of people, so I think zoning is always going to be an issue. And with that zoning comes capacity issues and whether to build on or whether to add different things to the school to meet the needs of 14,000 kids.
