Last fall, Andrea Dinan, the district’s director of service learning and experiential programs, was in search of meaningful volunteer projects that students could undertake during the Covid pandemic when she happened across a posting on an Arabic studies listserv looking for English teachers to help Egyptian pupils with reading. When she replied to the posting to offer help, Dr. Dinan was surprised to learn there could be as many as 900 pupils from the Diwan School in Bani Serif, near Cairo, who would participate.

Dear PPS Parents and Staff,
With the support of the Princeton Board of Education, I sent a letter today to Governor Murphy encouraging him to expedite Covid vaccinations for New Jersey educators. In this district we feel strongly that a delay in protecting teachers results in a further reliance on remote instruction, something we all hope to minimize. We are reaching out to other elected officials and continuing to work hard on behalf of PPS students and staff.
I have included a copy of our message to the Governor (below).

Stephenie Tidwell came to education by way of banking, so she knows a lot about applications of mathematics in the financial sector. That knowledge of the uses of mathematics in the real world will help her as she sets about a curricular review in Princeton’s mathematics program intended to broaden participation by creating new course opportunities, particularly at the high school level.
