Principal Welcome Letter

Monmouth Junction Families,

I am honored to write to you as the new principal of Monmouth Junction Elementary School. I am very excited to get started in my new role on January 2, 2023.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce 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.

I am now in my twenty-first year in education and my nineteenth year in the South Brunswick School District. 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 past ten years as a school administrator in our district have given me a great deal of experience that I will bring to Monmouth Junction to help make a wonderful school even better.

I am the father of two wonderful middle school daughters. 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 now thrilled to bring my experience as a father and an administrator to 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, and I look forward to getting to know all of you soon.

Thank you,
Michael Scheese
Principal of Monmouth Junction Elementary School
