Welcome Back Message:
I would like to welcome back all of our returning students and a give a warm welcome to the Class of 2021! I hope that you have enjoyed summer recess. While you have been away, a lot has gone on at Madison High School to prepare for the 2017-18 school year. Our custodians and buildings & grounds department have done a tremendous job cleaning and preparing for yet another busy school year. We have made great improvements to many of our athletic facilities including new stands and press box at our football field and the resurfacing of our running track and tennis courts. The ceiling, lights, and heating system have been replaced in the cafeteria, bathrooms are being revitalized, and the court yard outside the media center looks beautiful. Our staff members are eager to get started and will bring great enthusiasm and knowledge to our programs taking them to new heights this school year. We look forward to seeing everyone in September!
I am excited and privileged to be entering my first year as vice principal at Madison High School. Madison High School is an outstanding academic institution which has been recognized as one of the best schools within Morris County and has received both national and state recognition as being a top performing high school. I come to Madison after teaching math, primarily geometry and algebra II, for the past ten years. I began at Sayreville War Memorial High School, followed by a year at Cranford, and most recently Millburn High School for the last five years. I spent a majority of that time coaching basketball and baseball as well.
As an educator, I believe that creating a safe and positive learning environment is the key component that enables students to achieve success. I am fortunate to be in a position that offers me the opportunity to help students work toward reaching their potential and maximize their high school experience. My interactions with the staff and students have been nothing short of great and I am extremely excited about joining your team.
