Principal Jennifer Connors
I was born and raised in Maryland and moved to New Jersey with my husband and our son in 2015. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and my Master of Education in Education Leadership from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. In 1998 I became an assistant principal and then principal with Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia, while completing coursework in a doctoral program for Multicultural/Bilingual/ESL at George Mason University. In 2006 I became a principal with Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland. Moving to New Jersey in 2015, I was a principal in Morris School District and then Sussex-Wantage Regional School District. My experiences have allowed me to present at national and state-level conferences, to assist in writing for publication, and to participate on podcasts as a guest administrator.
I believe a school should be a place where every child feels welcome and has a sense of belonging. As a school community, we are responsible for creating a safe and secure environment, a place where no child should ever be asked to give up who they are to be successful. As a parent myself, I know that we all want our child to thrive in their school environment and to be respected for their uniqueness. Clinton Elementary School is definitely an environment where children thrive and where we celebrate what makes each child unique.
Favorite part of Clinton School:
One of my favorite things about Clinton Elementary School is that there are so many opportunities for students and families to get involved. A few that already stand out to me in just my short time here are the Leader in Me program, the Gardening program, the Enrichment Program, and the Clinton Student Theater. It is truly a warm, loving, and inviting community.
