Dear Residents of Paterson:
 
I am extremely honored to have been selected by you to serve as a member of the Paterson Board of Education and to accept the responsibilities that your trust has entitled me to. I am boundlessly grateful to the voters of Paterson who thus empowered me to do what I can to make the educational structure in Paterson better, and I can hardly keep in my impatience to start it. I guess I'll have to wait at least until the end of the swearing in ceremony to start. 

Our school district requires a lot of improvements. As mentioned in my election campaign, I will direct my attention to the problems in our schools, My second concern will be ensuring that young parents will have the proper tools to properly advocate for their children. . Finally, I also plan to minimize and eradicate the absence of parental involvement by ensuring that all parents are aware of what is happening in the district and by showing them what they can do to make a difference.
 

Thank you again for your trust in me and my team. I am grateful to my supporters for their belief in me that empowered me to accept the task of working with  Parents, the State Superintendent, Administrators, Teachers and School Board Members in ensuring the academic success of the entire Paterson Student body.. In my work as a board member I pledge to adhere to the rules and regulations associated with the office. I am proud of your trust, Paterson, and I will justify it to the best of my competence and knowledge.
 
Thank you.
 
Corey L.Teague
