Veteran educator James Morrow returns to The Y.A.L.E. School team, with more than thirty years of teaching and administrative experience with students of all abilities and ages. In September of 2011, Morrow re-joined Y.A.L.E.’s team of educators and now serves as Principal at the Williamstown campus.
Mr. Morrow’s roots with The Y.A.L.E School date back to 1979, when he began working with Y.A.L.E. secondary students with behavioral and academic difficulties. During those early years at Y.A.L.E., Morrow helped establish a building-wide academic and behavioral program of clubs that provided students an opportunity for socialization and skill development at the end of each week. Also, he developed a private-school basketball league for secondary-aged students.
Morrow later moved on to the public school arena, teaching at Woodbury High School, where he created a secondary program for students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. He worked as an Assistant Principal at the Mantua and Logan Township Schools, and as a Principal at Hainesport Township School. His years in the public school system gave him unique insights.
Morrow holds an undergraduate degree from Cabrini College, a master’s degree from Drexel University and coursework at Rowan University.
“I have always taken a hands-on approach with the entire school community—from students and parents, to teachers and therapists,” said Morrow. “I try to develop a familial atmosphere by providing a positive, supportive, academic, social and behavioral environment.”
