Principal's Message

 Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new principal of  Millburn Middle School.  I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the great success that Mr. Cahill has achieved in his role as Principal.  He has led this school to amazing heights and created a solid foundation for the future success of the Millburn Middle School.  I want to wish him well in retirement as he embarks on the next phase of his life.   

As a former graduate of the Millburn Public Schools, I am excited to return home and give back to this amazing community and prestigious school district that has provided me the foundation for my personal and professional successes and accomplishments.

I bring with me 22 years of experience in public education ranging from elementary to high school as a successful teacher, supervisor and administrator in the Madison Public Schools.  As I begin this new chapter in my career as the Principal of Millburn Middle School, I look forward to engaging the students, parents, and teachers in conversations about how we as a community can build on the great successes of the Millburn Middle School to provide not only a first-rate education but an experience that will best prepare our students for future success.

My experiences have fostered in me a passion for helping students reach their potential academically, while also developing strong character and emphasizing the value of citizenship.  As an educator, I subscribe to a philosophy that embraces a balanced approach to education that allows students to mature academically, socially, emotionally and physically with the necessary level of independence, guidance and support.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we forge a collaborative working relationship on behalf of our students.
