Dear School #1 Family, 

I am delighted to introduce myself as Acting Principal of School #1. I have been a part of the Linden Public Schools for 23 years, as both a teacher and an administrator, and I am eager to begin this new endeavor in leading your school community. As a proud father of two teenagers, I am guided by treating your children, as I would want my own children to be regarded in their school buildings. 

As we embark on this school year, we should be mindful that this is a new beginning for all of us. Each new school year is an opportunity for growth and improvement, in the area of academics as well as social-emotional health. The unique challenges of today’s world are relevant and necessary to address; however, they will not deter us in our mission to educate our students and enrich their educational experiences with innovative technology and best teaching and learning practices.
