In 2001, Mr. Bulicki officially began working for the Lindenwold School District – as a middle school science teacher and computer/tech teacher. After three years of teaching and after receiving a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Wilmington University, Mr. Bulicki moved into administration to assist the student body as
