Mr. Edery is currently completing his doctorate degree at Rutgers University in the area of Educational Theory, Policy and Administration.  He earned his M.ED. in Educational Leadership at the College of New Jersey  and his Ed.M. and B.A. both from Rutgers University. Mr. Edery has most recently served as Principal of Asher Middle School in Marlboro, a school district

much like Cranford. Mr. Edery is an avid fisherman, married with 3 children; ages 3, 8 and 10. He and his family reside in Jackson.

Mr. Edery has depth of educational knowledge, values collaboration, is very personable and entirely student-centered.  I believe that he will work diligently to enthusiastically support the staff and students of OAS and to enhance the climate and academic programs that Cranford has worked long and hard to achieve.

Having said all of that, I would like to express sincere appreciation to Mr. Kevin Deacon in his role as Interim Principal since April and to the OAS staff for continuing their wonderful efforts during this time of transition.

I wish you all a wonderful 2015-2016 school year. Sincerely,

Dr. Gayle M. Carrick

Superintendent of Schools
