School Leadership Team

Emanuel J. Caravano

Being a part of Indian Fields and Dayton School is an honor that I enthusiastically embrace, as I return to this incredible learning community.  In our school you'll immediately notice many of the positive characteristics that help demonstrate our core values. For instance, you'll appreciate how our custodial team keeps the two buildings immaculate, you'll experience teachers passionately delivering well planned instruction (which meet the needs of all learners); and you'll hear the sound of our students being respectful toward one another and clearly sharing about all the learning they acquire each day.  At our school, we take great pride in the work that we as educators and our students put in to keep our school positive, productive and always seeking to improve.

Welcome to Indian Fields, an incredible place to not only learn, but a place where you'll LOVE to learn.


Fly High Hawks!

Carol Piza
Assistant Principal

I am very pleased to return to the Dayton School community in the role of Assistant Principal. My education includes graduating from the College of Mount Saint Vincent with a degree in English and Elementary Education. I advanced my studies by attaining an M.A. in Special Education with a concentration in learning disabilities from the College of New Rochelle and completing a Masters in Educational Leadership with High Honors from Rider University. I have taught as an adjunct graduate school professor at Rider University.

My teaching experience in the South Brunswick School District includes teaching language arts and special education. I have also worked as an administrator in our district in the role of Special Education Supervisor – Preschool through Grade 8 and then as Coordinator of Special Education Services. For the past four years, I have worked as an Assistant Principal in our district.

I achieved certification for the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards in Language Arts in 2000, was recognized as the recipient of the Governor’s Teacher Award, and was named to Who’s Who in American Teachers.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with students so that they can achieve their fullest potential socially, emotionally, and academically. It is a privilege to work with such a talented staff that truly understands early childhood learners in a community that values high academic achievement for all of its students.
