As the new superintendent for Shamong School District, I am truly honored to be a part of such a great community and District. I am also very much looking forward to meeting everyone and working collaboratively on continuing the mission of ensuring educational excellence for each of our children each school day. I began my career in the field of education 25 years ago and have held various positions in education including teacher, supervisor, athletic director, assistant principal, principal, and acting superintendent of schools. Most recently I served as principal of Pemberton Township High School.
My priority during my career has always focused on ensuring that students achieve to their fullest potential in all areas of academics, athletics, and the arts. With the start of the 2013-2014 school year fast approaching, I am planning on meeting with students, parents, and staff the next few months and building upon coalitions centralized toward an overall vision for the school district with input from all the stakeholders. It is my sincere hope to work together as a school district and community to provide to our students the best possible education.
During all my years as an administrator, I have had an Open Door philosophy in addition to being visible throughout the school district. Please feel free to contact me at any time or inform me of important events. I also hope to become part of the community and learn more about the culture of Shamong and what you expect from me as your superintendent.
