Mr. Stephen Droske
I am thrilled to be the new principal for Jefferson Elementary School.
A native of Ohio, I moved to New Jersey after graduating from American University and marrying a Jersey Girl. As educators, my wife and I have devoted our professional careers to having a positive impact on the lives of our students. Now as parents to three young girls, we have developed a new perspective on the trust and opportunity provided to our schools and teachers.
Since coming to Hawthorne in 2015, it has become very apparent to me that Hawthorne is a community in the truest sense of the word. We are all working together, rowing in the same direction, to accomplish a common vision. To that end, I am so excited to work with all of you as I seek to continue Jefferson’s reputation of excellence that was cultivated by Ms. Zagatta and Ms. Sherman.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the years to come.
Stay well and I hope to see you soon,
Jefferson Elementary School
