Our mission at St. Nicholas School is to serve God by embracing, nurturing, and educating all His children, preparing them for lives of service and leadership rooted in the Catholic values of faith, hope, and love.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bernadette Miglin, and as announced, I have been appointed the new principal of St. Nicholas School effective July 1. I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to lead a school with such a wonderful legacy of academic and spiritual strength.
Previously, I served as assistant principal at St. Francis of Assisi School in Haskell, New Jersey where I also taught 3rd grade. I have been a teacher for 13 years and hold a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from Caldwell College and an Education Specialist Degree from Seton Hall University in the area of Education Leadership, Management, and Policy. In addition, I hold an M.B.A. from Rutgers University.
Our patron, St. Nicholas is known for his generosity to all in need, particularly children. For this reason, he is the patron saint of children (among others). Through my role as principal, I am grateful for the opportunity to assist in the spiritual and academic development of your children who are God’s gift to us all, and in doing so, live-up to the legacy of St. Nicholas and his special way of caring for children.
I look forward to meeting each of you personally before the start of the new school year on September 3. Let us together accept the challenge of fulfilling our school’s mission: "To serve God by embracing, nurturing, and educating all His children, preparing them for lives of service and leadership rooted in the Catholic values of faith, hope, and love".
Please call the school office if you would like to meet or just to say hello.
