    Mr. John Karakashian, Principal



    My name is John Karakashian, and I am the proud principal of Chairville School! I began my teaching career in Cherry Hill and moved to Delran when I was hired to teach 4th grade students at Delran Intermediate School. After seven glorious years in the classroom, I was promoted to assistant principal of Millbridge Elementary School. Four years later, I am ecstatic about the opportunity to serve the community of Medford in my new role!

    My wife Patty is a special education teacher, and together we have two children: Ryan and Aidan. We love spending our summers at the Jersey shore and taking long road trips to new destinations. Our family loves to root for the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers and we seize the opportunity to attend these sporting events whenever possible.

    Meeting people is my favorite part of being a principal. When I am at school, you can find me chatting with students, teachers or parents with a big smile on my face. Working with your children is an honor and a pleasure and I am truly grateful for the opportunity. I absolutely love what I do and I look forward to working with you in the future!
