Molly Dinning Ed.D.
I have been an educator for 21 years. Fresh out of college, I worked as a special education inclusion first and second grade teacher and then ran a self contained elementary special education classroom all in Western New York State. Upon relocating to New Jersey, I found a professional home in Ramsey and have stayed put ever since. I worked at (the old) Dater School as an elementary and special education teacher for 8 years. I was then named the principal of Hubbard School and held that position for 8 years. Most recently, I served as the Director of Personnel for the Ramsey District for two years and I am thrilled to be welcomed back to Dater School this year as principal.
My two daughters (10th and 7th grades) and I live in Ramsey and are proud to be part of this wonderful community and school system.
