Marta Bergamini has been an educator for 19 years. During this time, she taught Spanish to first through eighth grades and established herself as the lead teacher for a Bergen County district. In 2007, she was awarded the Governor's Teacher Recognition Award. In 2008, she was recognized for her work improving the professional development of teachers. Mrs. Bergamini holds a masters degree in Educational Leadership.

Mrs. Bergamini has been the Principal of the Ethical Community Charter School since its opening in 2009. Under her leadership and supported by an amazing community of families, staff, and trustees, TECCS has been recognized as a UNESCO school and has been awarded by the state to expand to 8th grade.

Mrs. Bergamini believes that the success of all students at TECCS will be due to:

  1. establishing an atmosphere where acting in an ethical manner by encouraging fairness and honesty is the norm.
  2. recognizing and fostering the natural ability of students by creating an environment where an inquisitive mind is encouraged.
  3. offering the latest in instructional programs, which will contribute to staff and student growth.
  4. cultivating an atmosphere of collaboration with all the parents and the community.
