Michael Rosenberg

My name is Michael Rosenberg and I have resided in Fair Lawn since 1974.   I am married to my lovely wife Ellen and have two sons that both graduated Fair Lawn High School, Anthony and Dan.  I have four grandchildren, Connor (Memorial), Kayla (Forrest), Riley, and Gabriella who all reside in Fair Lawn.

I have lived in Fair Lawn since the 4th grade and went to Lyncrest School, Memorial Junior High, and I am a proud graduate of Fair Lawn High School, Class of 1983.  I have an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Ramapo College.  Employed by the Hillsdale Board of Education, I am certified as an Elementary School teacher and as a K-12 Social Studies Teacher.  I currently teach middle school Social Studies.  I am a member of the Fair Lawn Sunrise Rotary Club. I am a life member of the Fair Lawn Rescue Squad where I proudly served from 1982-2011 and I am currently a member of the Fair Lawn CERT team.  I have been a Fair Lawn Boy Scout and Cub Scout Leader since 1986 holding many positions including being a past Cubmaster of Pack 45, and as a past Scoutmaster and Committee Chairman of Troop 53.  In the past I have served our fire department, historic preservation commission, all-sports, and other organizations in town.  I have been a Board of Education Trustee since 2007, serving as Vice President from April 2009-April 2011 and President from April 2011-December 2013. I am chairman of the Education and Finance Committees and a member of the Athletic/Co-Curriculum Committee, Special Education Committee, and Buildings and Grounds Committee.  I am also the board's representative to the Bergen County School Boards Association, where I am on the executive committee, and NJ School Boards Association.

I have a passion for the public education of our children and my number one priority as a board member is to see that the children of our community, no matter their ability, receive every opportunity we can possibly give them to succeed.  I believe that my experience in town activities, as well as my experience as an educator and board member give me a unique perspective on public education as well as our community.  The main reason many people move to Fair Lawn is because of the reputation of our schools.  All members of our community are encouraged to come to our monthly board meetings to give your input on our school system.
