Principal's Welcome Back Message

Monmouth Junction Families,

I am very excited to continue as the principal of Monmouth Junction Elementary School and look forward to a wonderful school year.

Just so you can get to know me a little bit better, I wanted to share some information about myself.  I earned my undergraduate degree from Bloomsburg University with a major in business education. I began my career as a business teacher in the Newton School District where I was also an assistant football coach. My wife and I relocated to central New Jersey in 2004 when I began my time in the South Brunswick School District as a business education teacher. I went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Scranton.

During my time in the South Brunswick School District, I have been a business teacher, a dean of students, a coach (football, wrestling, track and field), an assistant principal of Cambridge and Constable Elementary Schools, and an assistant principal at South Brunswick High School. These years as a school administrator in our district have given me a great deal of experience that helps me continue the wonderful work that is going on here at Monmouth Junction

I am the father of two wonderful daughters who are in middle school and high school. With them as my guides, I have learned much more about education and the importance of nurturing and connecting with young people from a parent’s perspective. I am thrilled my experience as a father and an administrator helps with my position as the principal of your child’s school. I will do everything I can to assure our students are as successful as they can be. I am here to help you and your family in any way I can.

Thank you,

Michael Scheese

Principal of Monmouth Junction Elementary School
