Lead Educator, Hassan Sabree
Greetings to all my Morgan Village Middle School (MVMS) family!! My name is HASSAN SABREE, and it is my honor to serve in the role of LEAD EDUCATOR at MVMS for the 2023-24 school year.
Since I was young, growing up in the Whitman Park section of Camden, New Jersey, and attending OUR school district, I always believed in the power of a high-quality education. As a proud graduate of Camden High School, class of 1995, my belief still holds true today. It is my sincere hope that we all embrace this belief as a school community and strive to make this belief a reality for our Morgan Village scholars.
After high school, I went on to graduate from Morgan State University with a bachelor’s degree in music education and later a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Rutgers University in Camden. This will be my 23rd year working in the Camden City School District, and I couldn’t be more excited. Over the course of my career, I’ve had the pleasure of teaching many talented students at various schools including RT Cream, Cooper B. Hatch, and Camden High School. I most recently served as the Lead Educator at Harry C Sharp Family School.
Our school’s theme for this year is “It Takes a Village”. Coming together and uniting as ONE will be our goal as we return to “In-Person” instruction. Our school’s motto is “GREAT EXPECTATIONS, NO LIMITATIONS” and with the help of our great teachers and supportive families, we EXPECT to have the best school year yet!
Dean of Students, Nyree Aumaitre
Hi, my name is Nyere Aumaitre and I am the Dean, which is what most staff, students and parents call me. I am a former student-athlete alum of Woodrow Wilson High School who was fortunate enough to achieve a full scholarship to further my education at the University of Iowa. After graduating from U of I, I was blessed to play professional football for seven years.
After I retired from playing football, I decided to return to Camden, NJ to give back to my community. I have been in the education field for 6 years now. While serving the students and families of Camden City School District, I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership at the University of Wilmington in Delaware. I have gone above and beyond supporting students and families in the Camden City School District, and I will continue to do so here at MVMS.
Family Operations Coordinator (FOC), Derek Williams
My Name is Derek Williams. I am honored to serve as your Family Operations Coordinator here at Morgan Village Middle School. During my undergraduate years at Rutgers University-Camden I worked at Cooper’s Poynt family school as an education ambassador during their after-school program. This is what first sparked my interest in the education field with an emphasis on the importance of community engagement and the effect it has on our children.
After graduating from Rutgers University- Camden with a double major, I began work as a behavioral health worker in the School District of Philadelphia. I then made a transition into case management before starting my journey with Camden City School District.
This experience with students in the classroom as well as with families throughout the community has given me a unique perspective on promoting student success. I believe that the core of student success is parent and community engagement. My Vision is for parents to walk with their child through their education from kindergarten – 12th grade. My goal is for parents to be as connected to their child’s education as possible to provide educators with the tools to educate each child to the best of their ability.
