Welcome to Beach Haven School
Dear Beach Haven Community,
I cannot begin to express the excitement and gratitude to be named the next Superintendent of Beach Haven. I am truly thankful and humbled by this opportunity. Over the next few days, weeks, months, you will come to find out that I am a student-centric administrator; anything, everything possible to meet our students’ social, emotional, physical, and academic needs. In my current position, I coined the phrase, “Promising Every Student a Future!” I will continue to uphold this mission by being trustworthy, transparent, and visible for every parent, guardian, community member, staff member, and most importantly, OUR STUDENTS!
Professionally, I am in my fifteenth year in education. I spent my first nine years as a Student of Disabilities Teacher. In addition to my time in the classroom, I spent countless hours as an advisor, assistant athletic director, coach, mentor, tutor, and volunteer. Most recently, I spent the last six years as a school administrator within the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District. I initially served as a shared assistant principal throughout the district’s three elementary schools before being promoted to the role of Principal of Lafayette-Pershing School. I am very thankful for this experience and know I grew as a leader and more importantly, a person.
Personally, I grew up in Richland in Buena Vista Township and attended the Buena Regional School District in Atlantic County. Currently, my wife, Dawn, my daughter and expected daughter, Lola and Lucy, and my son, Cruze, live in Hammonton.
Educationally, I attended Stockton University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts. I concurrently completed my Students of Disabilities Certificate at Rutgers University and my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership at Wilmington University. This past July, I successfully defended and received my Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Innovation.
I am confident the above-mentioned experiences have molded me into the leader that will guide Beach Haven School for years to come. Without question, TOGETHER, WE WILL PROMISE EVERY STUDENT A FUTURE! Even though, I am scheduled to begin this April, I would like to begin the process of assessing your feedback now. Please complete this short survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8B92MCQ
I look forward to working together!
