It is my honor to serve the Haddonfield School District as the Assistant Superintendent of Schools. Throughout my 28 years in public school education, 18 of those in Haddonfield, engaging with the school community to ensure the best possible educational experiences for students has been at my core.
My public school career started in Cherry Hill, N.J., as a teacher of special education in both resource and in-class support at the elementary, middle and high school levels. I was proud to have been part of a team that initiated co-teaching at the elementary level and honored that the innovate work in special education and technology was recognized on the educational television program “Classroom Close-Up N.J.”
I began my administrative tenure as the principal of an Early Childhood Center and later at the elementary level (Cherry Hill).
I joined the administrative team in Haddonfield in 2005 as principal of J.F. Tatem Elementary. After six years, I took over the principalship at our middle school, where my focus on students with special needs resulted in 18- and 21-point gains respectively in the areas of Language Arts and Mathematics on the NJASK.
In July 2014, I took over as Director of Special Education. In collaboration with our wonderful teachers and team members, we greatly expanded the continuum of services we provide our students, responding to the evolving needs of our student population. Our commitment to ensure students are educated and supported in the “least restrictive environment” helped Haddonfield to be the only school district in New Jersey to be honored for Spotlight Recognition from the N.J. Coalition of Inclusive Schools.
On July 1, 2020, I began my tenure as the Assistant Superintendent of Schools.
My wife, Dawn, and I are proud parents of four, ranging from college-age to primary school. We reside in Hainesport, N.J.
It is truly a privilege to have the opportunity to continue to service the needs of the Haddonfield School District community as Assistant Superintendent.
