During my tenure as an educator, it has always been my dream to lead the building that has helped foster my commitment to student success. It is surreal that after walking across the coveted blue and white stadium stage over twenty five years ago, I now return as Principal. Teaneck is a place like no other. The experiences that I was afforded throughout my matriculation cannot be paralleled. I will do everything in my power to ensure the students that walk the hallways of “The Castle on the Hill” share in some of the same valued opportunities.
The 2020-2021 school year will undoubtedly be unprecedented. Given the circumstances we remain
committed to providing a safe, engaging and welcoming learning environment. With your support we will educate the entire student, prepare them for the world’s challenges, create global thinkers, and instill resilience, persistence and success; all while allowing opportunities to uncover their own identity, find their own voice and advance towards achieving their post-secondary ambitions.
Our patience and commitment may be tested throughout the year, but together we will achieve greatness.
