I am beyond thrilled to announce that, at last evening's Special Board of Education Meeting, Mrs. Tara Oliveira was named as our new ALJ Principal and Mrs. Katrina Poskay as our new ALJ Assistant Principal.
Mrs. Oliveira, a graduate of both ALJ and Lehigh University, is coming to us from the Berkeley Heights Public Schools where she serves as the Assistant Principal of Governor Livingston High School. She was named Assistant Principal of the Year on both the state and national levels.
Mrs. Poskay, as you know, is an ALJ English teacher and our Pride district newsletter editor. She retired after the fall 2021 season as a Hall of Fame Varsity Field Hockey Coach.
Mrs. Oliveira and Mrs. Poskay are certain to lead ALJ in the most positive of directions.
Mrs. Jennifer Feeley is deserving of a very special thanks for all of her years of service to our students and schools. Mrs. Feeley had a stellar experience both teaching and leading here. She has the most creative of minds and hugest of hearts. While Mrs. Feeley will certainly be missed when she begins her retirement at the end of September, she will always have a home here with us in the Clark Schools.
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Oliveira and Mrs. Poskay and thanking Mrs. Feeley.
Hope you all enjoy the weekend ahead.
Superintendent of Schools
