I am excited to join the Owen J. Roberts community as an Interim Assistant Principal for the remainder of the 2020 – 2021 school year. My family and I recently relocated to this area after living in Spokane, WA for the last four years. After staying home with my one-year-old son for the last several months as we settled here, I am excited to be back in a school community and am eager to support OJR students, families, and staff.

I have seventeen years of experience working in public education, twelve of which have been as an administrator. After graduating from Boston College in 2003 with a B.S. in Biochemistry, I moved to Philadelphia to teach chemistry at Martin Luther King High School. In 2007, I joined Mastery Schools – Lenfest Campus where I worked as an Assistant Principal for Instruction. Three years later, I had the opportunity to transition to the role of Principal at Mastery – Lenfest, where I remained until 2016. In 2016, I also earned a M.Ed. at the University of Pennsylvania. At the conclusion of the 2015 – 2016 school year, my wife and I temporarily moved to Spokane, WA. In our first year in Spokane I did some consulting work developing math and science curriculum and assessments, but realized how important being in a school was to me. For the last three years, I worked as an Assistant Principal at Glover Middle School until our family returned to this area.

As I get started, I am eager to build relationships as quickly as possible so that I can be an effective support to this community. I encourage students to introduce themselves when they see me in the building and I invite anyone to reach out to me if I can be a support in any way. I can best be reached at skollar@ojrsd.net or (610) 469-5153. I look forward to working with all of you and to having a strong and productive year together.
