Thank you for visiting our the East Rutherford High School Web Page.
I am fortunate to serve as the principal of Cavalier Nation, and have the opportunity to work with 730 of the finest students on the planet. I am in my 5th year at ERHS and this marks my 19th year in education.
I began my career as a special education teacher at Chase High School. During those five years at Chase, I also coached football, baseball, and basketball. I was named the principal of East Rutherford Middle School in January of 2007, and had a wonderful experience serving as their principal.
In 2012, I had the honor of being named the Rutherford County Principal of the Year, The Wells Fargo Region 8 Principal of the Year and the Met Life/NASSP North Carolina Middle School Principal of the Year. This honor has allowed me to travel and see the fine work going on in school across our state and nation.
East Rutherford High School is flying high due to the efforts of our students, staff and community. We were honored by being named one of America's Top High School in 2014 by US News and World Report. We have made incredible gains in school performance and growth. We are ecstatic that our graduation rate is at an all time high, but will not be satisfied until every student receives a diploma.
Our buzz word this year at ERHS is D.A.N.C.E.. We have asked our staff and students to Decide that this will be the best year ever at East Rutherford. After making that decision, Announce it to as many people as possible, as often possible. Take on the attitude that No excuse or Challenge will defeat you. TheExpectation has been established, so CAVALIERS.........Let's Dance!
We invite you all to DANCE with us this year at East Rutherford High School.
I am a 1997 graduate of Gardner Webb with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education K-12. I earned a certification in Special Education from UNCC, as well as a Master of Arts degree from Appalachian State University in School Administration.
