Hello and Welcome back!  I hope that you and your family had a most rewarding and relaxing summer vacation. My name is Kerri Walsifer and I am thrilled to be the new Supervisor of Guidance Services for the Rumson School District.  

First, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few things about myself.  I have been in education for over 19 years and served in a number of roles as a Regular and Special Educator, L.D.T.C., Assistant Principal and Director of Student Services.  I have been active with the NJDOE as a member of the Special Education Task Force and contributed and authored several publications to date.  I hope to bring my various experiences and skills with me to support our school community.    

It is my hope that this school year will provide successful experiences for ALL of our students.  We will be incorporating the 10 Pillars of Character into our monthly practices at both schools and will be embedding social skill lessons and activities around these traits.  Additionally, we will be hosting various assemblies, parent academies and activities to support a positive school culture.  I look forward to partnering with you to best support your children.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any thoughts, questions or ideas you may have to contribute to our wonderful school.
