District Science Supervisor

Thomas Misiak is the district Science Supervisor for Bernards Township Public Schools. Prior to arriving in Bernards Township, Tom spent 3+ years as the 6-12 Supervisor of Mathematics, Science, World Languages, Business & Technology in the Clark Public School District. As a precursor to his administrative career, Tom was a high school science teacher at Hillsborough High School in Hillsborough, NJ, where he taught Chemistry, Physics, Geophysical Science and Environmental Science. Dating back to his time as a classroom teacher, Tom has been involved with presenting and participating in foundational work on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). His experience includes presentations at Rider and Princeton Universities on "Big Ideas Modules" using the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Atlases and multiple presentations on the NGSS at the New Jersey Science Convention. Tom earned his BA in Chemistry and Secondary Education and his MA in Curriculum, Instruction, and Supervision; both from Rider University. His thesis involved data mining student performance data in math and science across grades 7, 8, and 9 to identify issues with curriculum scope and sequence as well as student placement. Resultantly, Tom has used his expertise with data mining and analysis of student performance indicators to revise and align curricula horizontally and vertically. Tom lives with his wife, Teresa, sons, Aiden and Aaron, and daughter, Abigail.
