Principal's Bio


     It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the principal of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School (DDE).  My name is Marilyn Cosme Bright and I have been an educator for 17 years.  I have been with the Berlin Township school district for over ten years, first as principal of the John K. Kennedy Elementary and currently as the principal of the middle school. Working at the elementary and now the middle school in the same district has given me the unique opportunity of getting to know my students’ families well and establishing long-standing partnerships in their children’s education. Watching the students grow and mature give me pride in knowing that I have had a role in their development. 

     Prior to Berlin Township Schools I taught students with special needs and remedial reading.  I earned both my master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Rowan University.  My New Jersey educator certifications include Principal, Supervisor, Certificate of Eligibility for School Leader (Superintendent of Schools), Teacher of the Handicapped, Reading Teacher, and Elementary Teacher.
