Dear Lewis F. Cole Middle School Families,
It is with great pleasure and pride, I write this letter to introduce myself as the incoming Principal of the Lewis F. Cole Middle School.  This school serves many purposes in the natural educational progression of our children but none more important than serving as the bridge between the intermediate school and high school.  The overarching goal is to prepare them for the academic and social transition to high school.  My personal goal is to promote a positive and motivating climate and culture for students and staff alike.  I look forward to meeting these goals with the collective participation of students, parents and staff.
As I begin my 20th year in education, I am proud to have dedicated ten of them to students, parents and staff in the Fort Lee Public Schools community. I joined the Fort Lee Public Schools as an Instructional Supervisor in 2012 and worked closely with teachers and building principals to support the curriculum and programs in all of the schools.  In 2015, I became an Assistant Principal at Fort Lee High School and enjoyed every moment working alongside my colleagues.  During the 2021-2022 school year I transitioned to Acting Principal at School No. 1.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the staff and certainly our young scholars at the elementary level.   I look forward to collaborating with the entire Lewis F. Cole Middle School community to ensure that our students and staff receive the support they need to meet and exceed their goals.  
Attached to this letter and email you will find the supply list for the 2022-2023 school year.  It will also appear on the school’s website under the “News” tab.  Enjoy the remaining days of summer.
