School Leadership Team
| Joe Anzek
I am honored and excited to be named Interim Principal of the Dayton and Deans Schools. I was Principal of the Brunswick Acres School here in South Brunswick for 21 years. Before that, I was Principal of a private school in Chicago. I have taught grades four through high school in a number of settings, including South Brunswick.
I am committed to the concept that academic and social learning are of equal value. So, it is of great interest to see children learn so much in kindergarten and first grade from their classmates as well as their teachers.
I look forward to meeting all of the Dayton and Deans family members, as I get to know the children and the staff members in the next few weeks.
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.
