• Welcome to Voorhees Middle School! 

    My name is Idalis Kizee, and I am thrilled to be the 7th grade Vice Principal of Voorhees Middle School.

    I am looking forward to welcoming our new 7th graders back to school! The 7th grade team is a family of educators who go above and beyond for our students. We look forward to working together to support our students' academic and social-emotional needs throughout the 2021-2022 school year.

    I graduated from Rowan University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education (K-6) and a Bachelor of Arts in Writing. I started my teaching career in Waterford Township School District, where I taught both 2nd and 5th grade. My six years of classroom experience will always remain close to my heart. My love for Literacy inspired me to return to Rowan University and complete a Master’s in Reading and Reading Specialist Certification (K-12) in 2016.  As a Rowan University Adjunct Professor in the College of Education, I teach courses specializing in reading and literacy development. I am dedicated to ensuring that all children have access to a high quality, equitable, and comprehensive learning experience.

    My desire to enter Educational Leadership led me back to Rowan University to complete my Master’s in School Administration in 2018. I am always eager to grow professionally, and I believe in lifelong learning. 

    I am a firm believer that one can overcome all obstacles. With hard work and dedication, you can accomplish your goals and dreams! As educators, we have the power to build relationships that inspire children to believe in themselves. Mistakes are proof that you are trying, and tomorrow is a new day with endless possibilities. 

    I am looking forward to continuing my Educational Leadership journey at Voorhees Middle School. I am an advocate for student achievement and instructional excellence. Working in collaboration with families, the community, and the dedicated staff of VMS to provide our children with a safe, valuable, and innovative Educational Experience is my priority! 

    The 2021-2022 school year will be the start of my third year at VMS and I am so lucky to call Voorhees Township Middle School my new home! In addition to 7th grade, I oversee the Math, Science, and Social Studies Departments at VMS.

    This past year has inspired me to continue my education and I am very excited to start my Ed. D program at Rowan University in the Fall!
