New Jersey Department of Education

As Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Education, it is my honor to work with you to ensure the 1.4 million children educated in schools throughout our state are successful: from preschool to post-secondary.

Since 2018, I worked with my team to transition our agency to become a model organization that strengthens teaching, leading, and learning, and increases educational equity for students across New Jersey. We know the long-term success of our state lies in our ability to provide children with educational equity and access to high quality education.

To that end, we’ve dedicated funds and other resources to preschool expansion; STEM education; Career and Technical Education (CTE); and to diversifying the educator pipeline.

We hope to continue to make strides in these and other areas with your support, and we look forward to continuing our working relationship to ensure every child succeeds in and out of school.
