Dear Staff, Parents, Students, and Community Members,

It is with great enthusiasm and honor that I write this letter to you as the newly appointed Superintendent of the Englewood Cliffs School District. For those of you who may not know me, I have been in the district for fifteen years. My career began as a third grade teacher, and I will always treasure those years. To see a child grow academically, socially, and morally is one for which I will be forever grateful.  In addition to teaching elementary school, I have also taught sixth grade language arts and seventh grade writing.  Later in my career, I was promoted to an administrative position of Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction and Administrator at North Cliff Elementary School.

It is my priority to continue the tradition of excellence in the Englewood Cliffs School District. My goal is to create a rigorous, high-quality, and differentiated curriculum, which meets the needs of all students and current state standards. This will be accomplished by working closely with staff, fellow administrators, parents, students, and all community members.  I strongly believe that any goal is attainable when you have the passion to reach it. I am fortunate to be working with an administrative team and teachers who desire to see our district become the best possible.  Community involvement is also extremely important to me.  If we all work together, the Englewood Cliffs School District will soar to new heights. 

To be able to lead a district that has always been close to my heart is an amazing opportunity. I am very passionate about what I do and truly want to make a difference in the lives of young people.  Most importantly, I am thankful to the Board of Education for enabling me to have this opportunity.

Always feel free to visit, call, or e-mail me to discuss any concerns or suggestions.  My door is always open.

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal-a commitment to excellence-that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”

                                                                                                                                                                -Mario Andretti

Very Truly Yours,


Ms. Jennifer R. Brower
