RUMSON – In 1998, Stephen Sarles began his high school teaching career providing part-time instruction in Latin at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) and at Red Bank Regional High School (RBR).
He moved on to other assignments, including a full-time position at RBR where he was honored as Teacher of Year in 2005 and became the school’s first Coordinator of Baccalaureate Studies.
But RFH stayed in his mind as a great place to work.
“I had a tremendous experience at RFH and it was a great way to begin my teaching career,” Sarles said. “I learned numerous lessons from the staff and from my supervisor that helped me become successful as an educator.”
Sarles will soon be traveling full circle by returning to RFH as its new vice principal.
He is expected to assume his duties in late November or early December, filling the vacancy created when Chris Lanzalotto became the school’s director of athletics and student activities.
