Dear Lafayette School District Family,

My name is Michael Gall and it is with gratitude that I introduce myself as the new Superintendent of Schools for the Lafayette Township School District. As residents of Lafayette, it was an honor for our family to have our three children attend LTES. It is now a sincere privilege for me to join the school community as a superintendent.

I have been a teacher and administrator in New Jersey public schools for over 20 years, beginning as an elementary school teacher in the Garfield Public School District, serving 10 years as Principal of Wantage Elementary School and most recently , serving Sussex Wantage Regional School. District as superintendent.

Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to meet many LTES stakeholders. I have always been impressed by the enthusiasm of our students, the expertise of our faculty and staff, the dedication of our administration, the commitment of our parents and guardians, and the vision of our school board. It has always been evident that LTES has established a caring “family” culture that takes great pride in creating an exceptional learning experience. The values ​​of honesty, integrity, perseverance, dedication and hard work permeate every facet of our school and have resulted in a history and reputation of academic excellence.

Education is a collaborative process, and it is not possible without the support of all stakeholders. My goal is to continue to build on our history of success through collaboration so that every child can succeed. It is my commitment to you that despite being a “shared” superintendent, the Lafayette Township School District will maintain its own identity as a District of Excellence. I will work tirelessly to achieve this goal. Once again, it is a privilege for me to embark on this journey with you. Do not hesitate to contact me if I am ever able to help you with anything. I look forward to working with each of you and having an amazing school year!

Sincerely,

Michael Gall
