Dear Bryant School Families,
Welcome to preschool! You are joining the Teaneck public school community at an auspicious time. Our unique world circumstances are calling on all of us to join together with creativity, ingenuity, and flexibility to ensure that Bryant children will experience all the wonders of preschool. I'm honored to work alongside our amazing teachers, students, staff, and families to continue the success that has been established at Bryant.
A little about me… I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 25 years and have worked in a variety of roles from Preschool through 12th grade. Most recently, I led the team in developing Clifton’s Federal Preschool Expansion Grant program, where I served as the head of school for the Early Learner Academy, and then as Elizabeth’s Special Services Supervisor for Preschool and Autism.
On a personal note, my husband and I have lived in Maplewood for over 15 years. Our daughter Juliana is 13 and our son Joe is 15. Our family shares the community’s concerns regarding the Covid-19 virus. I want you to know that as your Principal, your children’s health and safety is of the utmost importance to me. Over the next month and throughout the school year, I will be working closely with the teachers, school staff, families, and district leaders to ensure that your children’s educational needs are safely met. We will strive to provide a positive, fun environment that nurtures your child’s academic growth and social emotional wellbeing - whether that environment is indoors, outdoors, or virtual!
My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and introduce yourself.
All my best,
Mrs. Danica Davidman
