Don Bosco Prep is proud to announce that Mr. Jeffrey M. Wojcik, Class of 2001, has been named the new principal for the 2022-2023 school year.
Mr. Wojcik earned his B.S. in Mathematics and Education from University of Scranton, after which he went on to earn two master’s degrees, an M.S. in Pure and Applied Mathematics from Montclair State University and an M.S. in Educational Administration from University of Scranton.
Mr. Wojcik has most recently been serving as principal of Randall Carter Elementary School in Wayne, NJ. He has served in various capacities within the Wayne school district since 2013, including assistant principal of Wayne Middle Schools as well as Wayne Hills High School. He has extensive background in math and science education, as well as data analysis and implementation of state testing.
“It is always exciting to welcome back an alumnus to Don Bosco Prep,” said Mr. Azzolino.“Someone of Mr. Wojcik’s credentials and knowledge, particularly with his expertise in math and science, will only continue to enhance the educational experience for our Ironmen. He is an incredible addition to the Don Bosco Prep team and we all look forward to working with him.”
Mr. Wojcik understands and embraces the value of a Salesian education as Don Bosco Prep continues to move forward in further developing its academic programs and pathways. “As an educator, I feel that it is important to have an understanding of children, the ability to connect content to students, and a passion for learning,” said Mr. Wojcik. “I also believe that the Salesian values that are taught at Don Bosco Prep lend themselves to a higher desire for the betterment of the child, and an acceptance that we are here to teach more than scholarly behaviors. We are here to show our students what it means to be members of a community, to be leaders, and to be in service to others. I came back to Bosco to live out that calling and to help guide the next generation of Ironmen to that same sense of purpose.”
