I am Dr. Andy Rose – a music performance major (classical clarinet) at CUNY Queens College, a 1967 graduate. I earned an MA in Elementary Teaching at New York University and a doctorate in Educational Leadership at Teachers College, Columbia University.

For 42 years, I was a public educator – the first 13 as a grade 5 teacher and Reading Specialist in New York City. In 1980, I became a principal in the Norwood Public School District, Bergen County, New Jersey. In 1984, I was promoted to the role of Chief School Administrator in which position I remained until my retirement in July 2009.  In May 2009, the Bergen Executive County Superintendent of Schools awarded me the title of “Distinguished Educator”.
