Dear Riverside Families,

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and relaxing summer. We have some good news to share with Riverside families and students. Nancy Whalen has been selected to serve as the Riverside Interim Principal for School Year 2022-2023. She has extensive elementary school leadership experience, a background in counseling, and a passion for elementary education. She is looking forward to meeting the Riverside community. Mrs. Whalen started at Riverside in early July. There will be opportunities for parents to meet her in August or early September.

Mrs. Whalen served as Principal at Sayen Elementary School in Hamilton Township from 2005 to 2019. She has Master of Arts degrees in School Leadership as well as in Counseling and Personnel Services from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). Her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education is from Elizabethtown College. Prior to becoming a principal, she served as a guidance counselor for nine years in Hamilton Township.

Mrs. Whalen was selected by a search committee that included parents, Riverside staff members, and administrators. I would like to thank everyone who participated in the committee for their service.


Dr. Carol Kelley
Superintendent of Schools
