Vice Principal's Message



Dear Dugan Families,

Welcome to the Dugan community! I am very honored to be the Vice Principal of a school that believes in preparing and motivating students for a rapidly changing world by instilling in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective and a respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and compassion.  I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the district students, staff, families and community members to ensure that every child benefits from a high-quality education which is what makes us unique. We are Marlboro! That means something!

My education began with a Bachelor's degree in engineering from Bangalore University, India, following which my husband and I launched a computer business in NJ. I later followed my passion for education, with an MS in elementary education from Rutgers University. I was a teacher at South Brunswick for eight years and went on to continue my education and receive my Administrative and Supervisory certifications from the Foundation for Educational Administration, through the NJ EXCEL Program. I joined Marlboro in October 2013 and have continued to learn and grow during my time here.

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 thank you for your continued support as we strive to create a better future for our children.

Kind regards,

Sashi Gundala
