My name is Joe Pienkowski, and this is my fifteenth year in the Jackson School District. I am a graduate of Jackson Memorial High School (Class of 2004), and I am honored and humbled to be working in the same school from which I graduated. In 2005, I went on to Ocean County College and received my Associate's Degree. I then went on to Kean University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in English. In 2017, I decided to go back and get my Master's Degree. I earned my Master of Arts in Education degree in May of 2020. In addition to my teaching duties, I am the Head Boys' Lacrosse Coach, an Assistant Boys' Soccer Coach, an advisor for the PALS Program, and an advisor for the Lynx Pride Program. I am looking forward to another great year working with the administration, staff, students, and parents/guardians.
