Superintendent of Schools

July 1, 2019

Dear West Essex Families:

I am honored and excited to be the Superintendent of the West Essex Regional Schools.  After eleven years in the district as a supervisor, director, and assistant principal, I have developed a strong connection to the students, faculty, staff, and community. I am eager to build upon the school district’s accomplishments by maintaining collaborative and professional relationships, so our students can learn and grow within a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Our talented and dedicated staff is committed to academic excellence.  Their passion for teaching and pride in West Essex is extraordinary. In the upcoming years, I will continue to support the programs which have allowed our school district to flourish.  Whether it’s academics, athletics, or the arts, students will have multiple opportunities to achieve their goals.

As the school year approaches, I will communicate with you as we work together to guide your children through these important years.  I look forward to working with our school community to strengthen our partnership and ensure success for all students. Again, I am extremely honored and proud to be a West Essex Knight!
