Steinhauer Elementary School

It is a great day to be a Wildcat!

Dear Maple Shade families,

I am honored and excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year as the Principal of Ralph J Steinhauer Elementary School. This will be my fifth year in Maple Shade as I transition from the Director of STEM & Network Technology where I had the opportunity to impact and learn with the students and staff in all four of our district school buildings.

The 2019-2020 school year will be my fifteenth year in education. Prior to joining the Maple Shade community, I spent ten years as a middle school math teacher, teaching in a wide variety of mathematics classrooms ranging from 6th to 8th grade. Outside of the classroom, I was involved in coaching high school football, middle school wrestling, and high school track.

My wife, Jennifer is a first-grade teacher. We have two sons, Lucas who is entering 5th grade and Benjamin who is entering 3rd grade. Last summer we also added a Newfoundland Poodle puppy to our family, Lola. Every day I continue to learn and grow from each member of my family.

I look forward to bringing my passion for learning to RJS this school year. Our students' experience at RJS will build on their Kindergarten through 4th-grade years and strongly contribute to their transition to high school. I believe in focusing on the whole student and creating a respectful, responsible environment where all students are happy, healthy and maximize their daily potential.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with our students and bring my diverse experiences to the Ralph J Steinhauer Elementary School. Please enjoy the rest of your summer and see you in September!
