Principal's Corner

  • sadowsky


    My name is Matt Sadowsky and I am the Principal of Bushkill Elementary School.  It is truly an honor to be a part of the Bushkill family and work to support the students and families of our school community.   Prior to joining the East Stroudsburg Area School District in 2019, I worked in Bucks County, PA in various teaching and administrative roles including first and third grade classroom teacher and Supervisor of Elementary ELA.  

    Bushkill Elementary School embraces a standards-based approach to learning, providing clear expectations and benchmarks for achievement in the core curricular areas. There is a strong emphasis in writing-across-the-curriculum to engage all students in the learning process. Standards are posted in every classroom, along with examples of student work that meet those standards. The students display a sincere respect for one another, as well as for their teachers.  We take a student first approach to everything we do while empowering our students to intrinsically find a love of learning and to strive to be the best indivdual they can be.  

    We are a school with a strong culture for learning and are dedicated to providing multiple opportunities for our students and school community to become successful learners in and out of the classroom. Bushkill Elementary School mutually benefits with partnerships with home and other members of the community to provide resources, experiences, and interactions for students and staff. We are truly a "Community School."


    I am truly committed to the success of every child.   Please do not ever hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.   

    Mr. Matt Sadowsky

    Dear Bushkill Families,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new assistant principal of  Bushkill Elementary Schools.  I look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best educational program for our students.  Bushkill  has a rich history of academic and cultural excellence that is a result of the school staff and parents who provide a diversity of experiences for our students.  I am honored to continue these partnerships and traditions by building relationships with students, parents, and staff.


    I began my career as an educator in the East Stroudsburg Area School District 13 years ago at East Stroudsburg Elementary School.  During those first 6 years I taught kindergarten, first, second and sixth grade before becoming the assistant principal at Smithfield and Resica Elementary Schools over the past two years.  I earned my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in Biology from Saint Francis College and a Master of Education degree in Administration and Supervision from East Stroudsburg University.  I have been married to my loving husband, George Angelopoulos, for 14 years.  We have two amazing children, Mariana who is 9 years old and Chris who is 3 years old and we live in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.


    As the assistant principal of Bushkill Elementary, I will work with Mr. Sadowsky to instill a love of learning  in each and every student.  Through building close relationships with students, parents and staff I am confident that we can work together to ensure that the students of Bushkill Elementary can be the best they can be.  


    I would like to wish everyone a terrific upcoming school year.  I know that it will be one of the best! You can find me  at Bushkill Elementary on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If there is anything I can assist you with please do not hesitate to contact me via email at
