Trinity-Pawling School faculty members Debbie and Dave Coratti

After four decades of loyal service to the School, Debbie and Dave P’08 will retire in June 2021. While they’re eager to spend more time with their kids and four grandchildren, the Corattis will sorely miss the close relationships they’ve developed with faculty and students. “I’ll miss being an integral part of these adolescents’ lives,” Debbie muses. “I always enjoyed helping the faculty grow professionally, both as teachers and coaches,” Dave offers. “We were the youngest couple when we arrived in 1981,” Debbie laughs. “Now we’ve become the grandparents of the community, offering counsel to younger families and empty nesters.”

From high school sweethearts to esteemed educators, Debbie and Dave Coratti have enriched the Trinity-Pawling community by embracing the boarding school promise: That an adult will become involved in the life of each child, will come to care about the child’s growth and development, and that caring will make a difference in the child’s education.

“Working side by side with Deb all of these years has been a dream,” Dave concludes. “I could not have asked for anything more.”

Join us throughout this year as we celebrate and honor Debbie and Dave Coratti and their years of service to Trinity-Pawling. Gifts to thank the Corattis for their dedication and commitment to the School can be made to the Trinity-Pawling Fund in their honor or to the Coratti Varsity Club, a special fund established in Dave Coratti’s name in 2012 to support Trinity-Pawling athletics.
