Principal's Message
Welcome to Willard School!

It is an honor to be the Principal of such a special school! Our teachers, staff, parents and of course, our students, work together to make Willard a positive and dynamic learning environment. In 2012 - 2013, Willard was named a National Blue Ribbon School, an award of which we are all very proud. 

I have spent most of my professional career in Ridgewood Public Schools. Before arriving at Willard in 2014, I was an Assistant Principal for seven years at George Washington Middle School. Prior to that, I taught grades 3 and 5 at Somerville School. I have loved all of my experiences, and am grateful to be able to say I look forward to coming to Willard every single day to work with such a talented staff and amazing children.

I invite you to access the various areas of our website to find information relative to Willard and the Ridgewood Public Schools. Parents are encouraged to refer to the Policies/Procedures tab, as many of your questions can be answered here. You will find important links on our homepage as well.

I look forward to a terrific school year and wish you all the best for the 2022-2023 school year!
