As a superintendent of schools in numerous districts, I have always made it a point to visit each school building as soon as possible so as to grasp a quick first impression of the district. On day two of my tenure in Hopatcong, I was honored to accomplish that task, escorted by board president Anthony Fasano. Please allow me to share those first impressions.

At each building, I observed children who were engaged in learning from a well-trained cadre of professionals. There was significant spirit and joy at the elementary levels displayed by all. My visits to classrooms at Hudson-Maxim, Tulsa Trail and Durban Avenue were characterized by hard working teachers, many of whom had specialized skills, engaging children in learning experiences that were fun, yet vital to the mastery of curricula. The educational service given to children with multiple challenges was especially heart-warming and illustrated the beauty of public education because there was a time, not too long ago, when those children would not have been part of a local school environment.

At the middle school, there were vestiges of excellent planning by current and past staff members who have set up a learning environment that is exciting and fits the needs of the clientele of that building. Students were well-mannered and industrious in their efforts. Interaction with staff members noted a pride in their expertise and training.

Towards the end of the day, we reached the high school where there is a strong presence of excellence in terms of teaching preparation by staff members, many of whom have demonstrated their talents beyond the school building in academic and creative endeavors. Students were engaged in mastering how to accomplish some rather impressive outcomes via technology, yet also were learning the beauty of working with one’s hands in the Wood Shop area.

Administrators were eager to share building strengths and honest about their needs. Meetings with individual administrators are now being accomplished and when completed, the board of education will receive a summary.
