Mrs. Wendy Mackey
Mrs. Mackey graduated with her Bachelor’s +18 from William Paterson University in 1995 and taught in the Palisades Park School system for 2 years. She then moved her career over to NMHS in 1997. When she decided to start her family, she took a short break from teaching (7 years) and after her “babies” were enrolled in full-time school, she was thrilled to return to NMHS in 2007. In addition to being a Special Educator for English, Mrs. Mackey runs the Book Chat! club because getting students into reading is a huge passion of hers. Outside of school, Mrs. Mackey is very involved in the town’s activities. She was a Girl Scout leader for 10 years, as well as a softball coach for 9 years. She currently plays softball for the Red Solo Cups on the Women’s Softball League and in her spare time she sings in a rock band (her absolute favorite hobby of all time:). During the summer, you will find Mrs. Mackey running New Milford’s Broadway Kids, which is a theater camp established in 2010 and held right here at NMHS during the summer.
