Human Resources

Welcome to the Human Resources Department

Director or Human Resources - Roseann Walker

I earned my Bachelor of Elementary Education and Masters in Administration and Supervision from Kean University. I obtained a second Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of Phoenix. I began my career as a second grade elementary teacher in the North Plainfield School District. During my 12 years there, I was also the technology teacher for the elementary and intermediate schools. In 2012, I was named the NJ Smart Data Analysis and Assessment Coordinator. I subsequently accepted a new position as the technology coach in Keansburg Public Schools where I initiated a new district website, oversaw student enrollment and supported technology programs in the district. 


Continuing my climb and gaining additional valuable experience, I was appointed the Grants, Assessments and Special Programs Coordinator at Edison Public Schools in 2016. In this role, my responsibilities included writing the ESSA Grant and providing oversight to the disbursement of funds where needed. At the same time, I assumed the role of district Anti-Bullying Coordinator and District Testing Coordinator for all 19 schools. I was promoted to the Supervisor of Health and Wellness, a new position, where I successfully transitioned medical benefits to a department that prioritized the well-being of 3,000 district employees. For a period of time during my tenure in Edison, I also served as the Supervisor of Transportation and Interim Director of Human Resources. In 2021, I became the Director of Human Resources in Cranford. 


I remain committed to Rahway Public Schools to ensure the district remains in compliance with state and federal laws.
