District welcomes new Early Childhood Center Principal/ELA Supervisor

Please join us in welcoming Ms. Suzanne Socha to our Woodland Park Family! Ms. Socha will serve our educational community in the capacity of Principal of our Early Childhood Center/ELA Supervisor beginning Sept. 14, 2022.


Ms. Socha earned a B.S in Elementary Education from the University of Scranton and an M.A. in Educational Leadership, Management, and Policy from Seton Hall University.  

Ms. Socha is an experienced educational leader and teacher, who is committed to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps for all students. For the past five years, she has served principal of a PreK-3 to grade 8 elementary school in Bergen County. Prior to her current position, she taught in both public and private education for over 18 years with most of her teaching experience at the middle school level in the area of ELA.

As a graduate of the New Jersey public school system, it is Suzanne’s desire to give back to the system that enabled her to be the first college graduate in my family and the educational leader she is today. She is honored and thankful to receive the opportunity to serve Woodland Park and is looking forward to contributing to the bright future for our school district.
