Principal's Message

Carteret Middle School Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed principal of Carteret Middle School. I am honored to have been chosen as your school leader of a building which is known for its dedication to excellence, but more importantly, to the children of Carteret.  Over the last 13 years I have worked as a teacher at Carteret Middle School, Vice Principal of both Carteret High School and Carteret Middle School and later Principal of Nathan Hale School. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader back home to Carteret Middle School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.


I look forward to spending time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, encourage them to know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.  My goal is to guide and support our staff and students to reach their highest potentials, in a safe and nurturing environment.


Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced

and learned with me back to Carteret Middle School. I look forward to getting to know you and your children.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any suggestions or concerns.

Thank you,

Tara Romero


Carteret Middle School
