St. Bartholomew Academy Hires Janet Ramos as New Vice Principal

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- St. Bartholomew Academy has hired Janet Ramos as the school’s new vice principal. 

Mrs. Ramos has extensive experience as a public school teacher and secondary level special education supervisor in the SPFK-12 school district. She worked 31 years at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School, first as a special education teacher for 16 years and then 15 years in administration as supervisor.

“What excites me the most about getting to work at St. Bartholomew’s is the strong sense of community and family involvement. SBA is an academically strong school and draws talented students from the area,” Mrs. Ramos said. “I am looking forward to working with the teachers, the students and the parents.”

Mrs. Ramos is proud of her long-term commitment to Catholic education.

“This (position) is a great fit for me; it completes a full circle of my personally and professionally,” Mrs. Ramos explained. “It started with my own schooling at St. Peter’s, my own children’s attendance at St. Bartholomew’s and St. Peter’s Prep. Now I have the opportunity to give back to the Academy and make a professional contribution. I am eager to get started.”

Mrs. Ramos received her Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Special and Elementary Education from Rutgers and her graduate degree in Educational Administration from Columbia. She also holds certifications as a Supervisor, Elementary Teacher (K-8) and various Special Education specialties.

Sister Elizabeth Calello, M.P.F., principal of St. Bart’s, stated: “We are blessed to be adding Mrs. Ramos to our administrative team.  Her administrative experience in one New Jersey’s finest school districts has provided a foundation of experiences that will serve the Academy and our students well.”



Mrs. Ramos started her term on July 1, 2017, when Suzanne Florendo stepped down as vice principal to become principal at St. James School in Basking Ridge.
