About Me

Hi! I’m Ed Yergalonis. Thanks for stopping by.

I have recently completed 38 years as a public school educator.  Throughout my career I have served as a teacher, coach, supervisor, assistant principal, principal of a middle school, principal of a high school, assistant superintendent and superintendent.  I currently serve as a mentor to principals and superintendents and I work as an educational consultant.

I am a former Geraldine Dodge Summer Scholar and have worked extensively to narrow achievement gaps and have served as a member of the NASSP National Urban Task Force.  Additionally, I have worked closely with the College Board to help change the culture of an urban school through the use of the Advanced Placement Program.  I received the College Board AP Recognition Award in 2008 and have recently completed a term on the National College Scholarship Service Assembly.  I helped form a partnership with Kean University and was instrumental in establishing my former district (Rahway, N.J.) as a Professional Development School District.  I was awarded the prestigious Richard Nichols Award for service from Kean University in 2006

I have presented frequently at both the national and state level and have authored and published numerous professional articles.
