SJR Announces New Hires

Saint Joseph Regional High School is pleased to welcome twelve new members to the faculty and staff for the 2022-2023 school year.

"We are thrilled to welcome such a talented and diverse group of educators to our faculty, and look forward to them making an immediate impact on the quality of our offerings," said Principal Michael Bruno '05.

The Green Knights welcome back two alumni to the staff - Brian Maye '93 and JR Inman '05 join the faculty, teaching mathematics and physical education, respectively.

Maye returns to campus after spending 20 years as a math teacher and department chair, most recently at Cardinal Hayes High School. He earned a B.S. in marketing from the Carroll School of Management at Boston College and holds dual master's degrees in administrative studies and adolescent education from Boston College as well.

Inman earned his B.A. in communications with a concentration in mass media from Rutgers University. An SJR Athletic Hall of Famer and the Green Knights all-time leading scorer in basketball, Inman has been a coach and mentor in the Greater NYC area since retirement from professional basketball.

On the new additions, Bruno said, "I am excited to welcome such an energetic group to join our already stellar faculty.  They will all work towards advancing our mission to develop students to think, lead, and serve."
