As your newly appointed Assistant Principal, I warmly welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. It is my sincere pleasure and honor to be able to assist Mrs. Wardell in making this one of the best school years ever. I look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
Please know that I am never more comfortable or “at home” than when I am walking the halls of a school, visiting classrooms , or simply talking with students throughout their day! I have taught many of the elementary grades for 12 years coupled with serving as an Elementary Curriculum Director and Staff Developer for grades K-8 .
Most recently I have been an Administrator in a neighboring Passaic County school district. I served as a Literacy Consultant and Specialist for Rutgers State University. The focus was on strategies and interventions for educators in how to be more effective in the classroom in teaching children to read and more importantly – how to excite children to want to read!
Please trust that I will share my administrative and leadership experiences to ensure that students are academically challenged and engaged. Along with the building Principal, it is my intent to support and celebrate each child’s strengths enabling success for all!
It is a privilege to become part of the Ryerson School Family and to continue to provide expanded opportunities for our students . Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone here at Ryerson, I look forward to a successful school year and meeting each and every one of you!
Mrs. Karen Dolci
