Each and every day, I observe the hard work and commitment to Haddonfield and its children by everyone who works for this district – and I am proud to be counted among them.
I’ve developed into a jack-of-all-trades and have worn many hats. I’ve been proud to serve in many capacities and have enjoyed each role. I began as an assistant principal, supervised Buildings and Grounds, served as a principal, then returned to the AP spot. Currently, I am working in the superintendent’s suite and taking care of business in several areas. I am the district’s HIB (Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying) Coordinator, the district’s School Safety Specialist (a role mandated for each school district by the N.J. Department of Education), and I serve as the district’s Standardized Test Coordinator. I have a newly found appreciation for what goes on in a central office – the amount of documentation and data entry that is required by state and federal law is, quite frankly, unbelievable! I am learning new tasks, and it makes life interesting!
As it was when I worked directly with teachers, I couldn’t ask for a better group of people in the central office to work with; each dedicated colleague brings kindness and joy to the day, and that is why I love working here so much. However, as everyone who moves into a more administrative role says, I do miss the kids.
