      Welcome to Midland #1!

    I'm excited to begin the school year, welcoming our students to the building in September. Our staff is looking forward to meeting the students in their classrooms and I anticipate a smooth transition for the new year. 

    I’ve worked in education for over 20 years, the past 9 years as part of school and district administration in PreK-8 settings. My last three districts have all had schools win the National Blue Ribbon award to recognize outstanding student achievement and school culture. I graduated from Northeastern University in Boston with my Bachelors, and continued on with a Masters degree from Rutgers and an Educational Specialist degree from Seton Hall University. My doctorate was also from Seton Hall University. In 2017, I was named ASCD Emerging Leader.

    I strongly believe in academic excellence and a warm and supportive school culture.

    My email is ccarmichael@rochellepark.org if you have any concerns or questions. 

    Enjoy the rest of the summer. I look forward to getting to know the community better and look forward to seeing our Lion Pride!
