This year, 2020 begins my 30th year with the Newark Board of Education. My career began at Oliver Street School where I taught 3rd, 4th, 7th and 8th grade and eventually became the ELA Staff Developer. After teaching, I rose through the administrative ranks, and my first administrative role was that of vice principal of Dr. William H. Horton Elementary School. Soon after, I became the principal of McKinley Elementary School and served in that role for 18 years. In 2016, I was asked to assume leadership over the Office of Special Education as Executive Director. Today, I am excited and honored to lead Student Support Service as an Assistant Superintendent of the Newark Board of Education.
