Dear Families, Students and Staff,
It is with great humbleness, excitement and pride that I write this letter to you as the newly appointed Principal of Oliver Street School. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I am a product of the Newark Public Schools, having attended Ann Street School and East High School as a student. I also pride myself in having a long career in education within the Newark Public Schools (East Side HS). I started at East side as a Social Studies Teacher in 2003, where I taught for 7 years. My administrative career started when I served 3 years as an Athletic Director and 6 as a Vice Principal of East Side HS.
I am honored to have been given the opportunity to work alongside a great team of professionals that have made Oliver Street School the best elementary school in the city of Newark. My number one focus as an educator and administrator has always been our children. I am committed to the students, staff and families of the Oliver Street School community and pledge to support you in every way necessary to ensure our students receive the high quality education they are deserving of. I am a father of 2 little boys and will work to ensure your children get the education and care I expect for my own.
I have always led with an “open door” policy and I will make myself available to answer questions and receive suggestions from families and community leaders. I look forward to leading the great team of professionals at Oliver Street School and look forward to a wonderful school year.
