Group to Honor Teaneck Schools Superintendent
Event planned at World of Wings
The following announcement was submitted by Henry Pruitt, a Teaneck councilman and former Board of Education trustee:
The Voorhees Street Association will be honoring Barbara Pinsak, Teaneck’s Superintendent of Schools, at a Spring Fling on Saturday April 13, 2013 at the World of Wings.
She has done a great job in improving the education of students since she took over the job about three years ago. The high school last year sent more than 90% of its students to college. Two thirds went to four year schools and one third went to two year colleges. There was a significant improvement in the four year college rate over the year before. Many of the students went on to prestigious colleges. The high school also offers thirteen advanced placement courses which makes it competitive with regional comprehensive high schools.
Barbara Pinsak devotes seven days a week to Teaneck. On Saturday mornings she volunteers with the Math Adventures and Word Play tutorial at Saint Marks church in Teaneck. One Sunday each month she hosts Sunday With The Superintendent conversations with members of the public on any matters that are important to them. We know of no other superintendent in the region that is as committed to her school district as Barbara Pinsak.
The Voorhees Street Association proudly recognizes our district superintendent for fulfilling her responsibility in cultivating the flowers of our community’s future. Come out to our dinner dance and help us to honor her. For tickets call Henry Pruitt 201-370-8099
