A Greeting from the New Superintendent…


Greetings to the Somerdale Park School community!  My name is Mark Pease, and I am honored to be the new Superintendent/Principal of Somerdale Park School.  I look forward to meeting many of you through the course of the school year. I am excited about all the possibilities for this year and I am eager to provide an enriching, caring and nurturing learning environment for all students.


I started my career in public education in 1993 as a teacher in the City of Camden. For ten years, I had the opportunity to teach high school students in both Camden High School and Woodrow Wilson High School. During that time, I also coached several sports (Football, Track and Softball). I later became Athletic Director of Camden High School, working with legendary coaches and athletes for four amazing years. My educational journey took me to Palmyra School District where I spent the last 11 years as an administrator in both Palmyra High School and Charles Street Elementary School, serving as Assistant Principal and Principal in both buildings.


I received my Bachelors of Arts in Economics from The Pennsylvania State University, a post Bachelors Certification in Special Education from Rowan University and my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from Wilmington University. I continue to have a love for learning that I know will be a model for many young learners.


Please do not hesitate to say hello or to introduce yourself whether it be at school functions, around the community or at student arrival or dismissal.
