Michael Moskalski’s 43 years of experience encompass five years as an elementary teacher, nine years as an elementary principal and federal program coordinator, and twenty-nine years as a superintendent. Thirty-eight of those years were spent in administration, the last twenty-nine as a superintendent. From 2004 through 2011 he served with the Rancocas Valley Regional High School in New Jersey, www.rvrhs.com, as the superintendent and principal. Rancocas Valley’s 2200 high school students represent a diversified student body with 36% minority and 20% special education students. Mike led the school through a systemic planning process, vision and implementation that improved student performance and considerably closed the achievement gap. The school has been removed from the School in Need of Improvement List and is now considered a High Performing School.
Mike served as a member of the Board of Directors for the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators, the New Jersey Association of School Administrators Achievement Gap Committee and the Delaware Consortium for Closing the Achievement Gap.
Mike’s specific strengths are in the school improvement process, leadership development, Understanding by Design, systemic planning and decision making, the use of data analysis to inform instruction, and the Kentucky Superintendent Leadership Development Program. The ISLLC standards have been an integral part of formative and summative administrator assessments in both of his last two school districts while Enhancing Professional Practice has provided the same basis for the teaching staff.
Mike has served as an adjunct instructor for Penn State, Temple and Drexel for a range of courses at the graduate level including a curriculum course of Understanding by Design for Drexel and Multicultural Education for Temple. Special Education has been a special interest which led to a four year term as President of the Pennsylvania Tourette Syndrome Association and frequent speaking engagements on the relationship between schools and families of children with Tourette Syndrome.
