Vice Principal's Message

Sashi Gundala
Dear Dugan Family,

The realities of schools today are unique and challenging. There are external as well as internal influences that shape a classroom and consequently the future of a student. As a student, I have experienced the impact of various forms of education, as a parent, I connect with other parent concerns and issues they face everyday, as a teacher, I hold in my hands my experience to share with my faculty and now as an administrator I am enthusiastic about putting all the above together and being a resource for everyone.

My education began with a Bachelors degree in engineering from Bangalore University, India, following which my husband and I launched a computer business in NJ. I later followed my passion in education, with an MS in elementary education from Rutgers University. I was a teacher at South Brunswick for eight years. Most recently I received my Administrative and Supervisory certifications from the Foundation for Educational Administration, through the NJ EXCEL Program. I have been at Dugan since the 2013 academic year.

I believe that students come first and every student can succeed. My vision is to focus on all students achieving educational excellence, through a rich curriculum and respectful atmosphere. By building on a strong sense of community, inspiring teachers and a commitment to character, we would prepare our students to become strong participants and leaders in the world community.

I feel honored to be a part of the Dugan family and serve in my role as a Vice Principal. I am here to support the students, teachers and the school community. Please feel free to contact me any time. You can call me at 732-972-2110, email me at or follow me on twitter @TagSash

Kind regards,

Sashi Gundala
