Principal's Corner

  • Dear Anthony V. Ceres School Community,

    I am excited and honored to introduce myself to you as the Principal of Anthony V. Ceres Elementary  School!  It is humbling to have the opportunity to support both the social and emotional growth and the academic success of the students in our community.  I understand the importance of strong relationships within the school community, and I look forward to building relationships with the students and families that represent the Perth Amboy community. 

    Before joining the Ceres School community, I have dedicated over 23 years as an educator.  I served as an English teacher, Literacy Coach, Assistant Principal and Principal at both the Elementary and Secondary levels.  Just prior to joining you, I was Principal of Samuel E. Shull Middle School.  I strongly believe in setting high expectations for our students and supporting them with the tools that they need to be academically successful.  My purpose is to care and advocate for our students, create a safe school environment, and to model integrity and respect daily.   

    The Anthony V. Ceres Elementary School Administrative Team includes our Vice-Principal, Mr. Brian Rivera.  We will be working together with our staff to ensure that students are welcomed each day into a rich, engaging learning environment where they know that they are important, and that they can reach their highest potential. 

    I am thankful for the opportunity to serve in this role.  Please know that I encourage you to contact us with any questions, support, concerns, or ideas.
