Interim Dean Jamey Verrilli
Since the beginning of his career, Verrilli has fought for community development and social justice. He began his educational work in 1984, as a Jesuit Volunteer Corps community organizer in the Bronx. Verrilli then joined Link Community School, where he stayed for more than a decade — first as a teacher and eventually as principal. In 1997, Verrilli co-founded North Star Academy Charter School of Newark, where he was principal of the Downtown Middle School for 14 years and saw North Star Academy grow to a network of 10 schools with 3,500 students.
Verrilli has received numerous awards for this leadership, including the National Blue Ribbon Schools' Terrel H. Bell Award, given each year by the U.S. Department of Education to the top ten principals in the nation. He earned his B.A. in history from Colby College and his M.A.T. from Brown University.
