Roger Coriat has been a resident of South Florida since 1977, and of Cutler Bay since 2009. He studied at the University of Miami, where he earned his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in History. Roger teaches Contemporary World History and Theory of Knowledge in the International Baccalaureate program at John A. Ferguson High School. He has been an educator at the high school and college level for over twenty years.
The Coriat family (Roger, his wife Jessica, and their children Sarah and David) enjoy all that Cutler Bay and South Florida have to offer, whether fishing in the Keys, visiting farmers markets in the Redlands, or enjoying dinner at a local restaurant. Roger and Jessica have both dedicated their careers to social service, and believe education is the best way to guarantee a promising future. Jessica is a lifelong resident of South Dade.
Roger serves as Town Liaison to the Education Advisory Committee, which he was a member of prior to joining the Town Council in 2014. Maintaining academic excellence in our town's schools, and cultivating a successful partnership between the town and school district, are key priorities for him. Another major goal is to preserve the natural health and beauty of our town's environment, curbing the harmful impact of overdevelopment while allowing for responsible growth. Ultimately it is the people of Cutler Bay, and not outside interests, that must be represented.
