• Christina Egan started on February 22nd as the Superintendent of Schools of the West Long Branch School District.

     

    About:

    Educational experiences include teaching middle and high school English Language Arts,
    supervising PreK-12 English Language Arts and World Languages, and serving as director of the preschool program
    in Keyport. Most recently, She served as the shared PreK-12 Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Tri-District
    of Atlantic Highlands, Highlands, and Henry Hudson Regional School Districts. She is also currently engaged in the
    final stages of completing a doctoral dissertation through Northeastern University, where her research focus is the
    voluntary retention of highly-effective teachers in challenging school contexts.

    Beliefs: 

    "My background in teaching and leadership has instilled in me an enduring conviction that each and every single
    child can learn and grow, and deserves to be seen, understood, and supported in ways that respect their unique
    individual needs. I am committed to lifelong learning, especially the kind of learning that happens when people
    listen to one another and seek to truly understand a shared vision for success. I am joining your school community
    during a challenging time in public education, and I recognize that collaborating closely with you is the only way to
    ensure that we make informed decisions that build upon the foundations of excellence and pride that already exist
    while also finding strategic ways to continuously improve."

    The WLB Administration & Staff are happy to welcome Christina, and are excited to the possiblities which lay under her 

    direction.
