Woodbridge High School’s new vice principal, Mr. Chiera. Mr. Chiera graduated from Colonia High School and taught there for years.

Since becoming a vice principal at Woodbridge High School this fall, Mr. Chiera has found himself settling into a new role, surrounded by new colleagues and students who have welcomed him into the Barron family.

“Well, I do have to say the color change was a little difficult at first. My whole life–attending Colonia High School, teaching and coaching there for years–but I have invited the color change to red and black, which I like,” Mr Chiera said.

Despite the rivalry between Colonia and Woodbridge, Mr.Chiera has said the students, staff, and environment of Woodbridge High School met his high expectations.

“I know the great reputation that Woodbridge High School has, not only academically, but athletically, as well. I’ve always been local, but I’ve but never been around the school… and it was enlightening to become a part of the traditions.”

Those traditions include the school’s strong sense of pride and spirit. “I’ve enjoyed my first couple of sports banquets that I’ve gone to attend. Just the community, parents, athletes, together commemorating a season,” said Mr. Chiera. “Our pep rallies have also been really cool. I’ve never experienced that, so that has been, again, just another situation where the students and staff get together to celebrate our school.”

As spring approaches, and the school year is coming to an end, Mr. Chiera said he is most excited about watching the seniors come closer and closer to graduation, as well as all of the upcoming spring sports and activities WHS has to offer.

“Everyone likes, sort of, the end of something, but also knowing that next year–for those who are coming back–, there will be a renewal of a school year,” said Mr. Chiera. “And just to see our different extra curricular activities, our sports teams perform, this spring will also be an exciting time.”
