    June 23, 2020 — End of Year Message

    Each and every one of us employed by New Brunswick Public Schools, more than 2,000 in all, were engaged in a daunting and remarkable undertaking. We did not know what to expect, at least in the beginning, and much of what we did from March through June 22 was developed along the way. We strategized, we improvised, and we persevered.

    June 1, 2020 — Message in Regards to the Death of George Floyd

    As educators, it is important that we understand the complexity of our reality and that of our students. It is important to teach our students the history behind their identity, the language behind their culture, and the geography from where they came. It is important to allow open conversations with the understanding that black and brown students may experience and interpret issues differently.
