I am pleased to announce that Eddie Rodriguez has been hired as an assistant principal for the Linden STEAM Academy.  Mr. Rodriguez will serve as the grades 3-5 assistant principal at Linden.  He will join the administrative team to focus on improving student learning, supporting teachers, and working with families and caregivers in the Linden community.

“Mr. Rodriguez is proud to have served in schools as a teacher and administrator supporting students, staff, parents and communities for the past 18 years. He grew up in the Roxbury section of Boston and graduated from Boston College High School. After graduating from Manhattan College, he received his Masters in Educational Leadership, Management & Policy from Seton Hall University.

He has served in the roles of Science teacher, Dean of Students, and Assistant Principal as a lifelong advocate for urban education. His educational philosophy is centered around Restorative Practices, 21st Century skills, data-mining, relationship-building, Equity, and positive school culture and climate initiatives.

Mr. Rodriguez also actively works with grassroots, state and national organizations to help support students, staff and families in different capacities. In addition, he is a high school and college lacrosse referee. He is excited to start the year, and his door is always open.”
