      Welcome to the school year 2022-2023. 

      I am Major Jan J. Burgess and I am proud to have the opportunity to be a part of Long Branch High School's Junior ROTC program.

    I have over 15 years of educational experience in the Essex County school district, serving as a substitute teacher. I have taught both 4th grade and 5th grade classes. During my time at the Essex County  school

    system. I was part of an after-school mentorship program for 5 years during my time at Chancellor Avenue School.

      I have 26 years of military service, serving 18 years in the Army National Guard and 8 years in the Air National Guard with active duty time in both branches. I graduated from

    New Jersey Institute of Technology and I am a life-long resident of New Jersey.

    I look forward to being  a part  of your child and our cadet  development in leadership and responsibilities.
