My name is Alba Lugo, and I am very proud to be the principal of Lindenwold Middle School. I am originally from Puerto Rico via Spain and Long Island. I began my career as a higher education administrator coordinating and implementing programs for students of color in the Engineering, Business and Public Policy fields. For eleven years, I taught Spanish to middle and high school students as well as ESL to adults. In 2014, I joined the New Brunswick Public Schools as one of their elementary school principals and, in 2016, became a high school vice principal.
My educational journey has taken many twists and turns. By the time I graduated from high school, I had attended a total of seven schools in Spain, Puerto Rico, and Long Island. I received my Bachelors Degree in Economics and a Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In the spring of 2022, I completed my doctorate from Rider University in Educational Leadership.
Our team looks forward to working together with our families and students to create a safe and exciting learning environment for all.

My name is Jacquelyn Johnson-Arline. I am a proud product of Philadelphia public schools, where I attended and graduated from The Philadelphia High School for Girls.
