Deborah Kane is thrilled to become part of Morris Catholic’s English Department teaching Senior English and Creative Writing. With a plethora of experience in education, Deborah has also taught religion and was part of a Catholic high school's recruitment/admissions team and has over 20 years of teaching experience in Catholic higher education, teaching at Universities such as Seton Hall and Caldwell University.
Moreover, Deborah’s career also includes years of writing exposure in the corporate and nonprofit sector facilitating communications, reporting local news, editing financial news, and writing copy for websites and marketing materials, as well as being part of events, fundraising and development. Deborah comes to the Crusader family with a “real world” and in the classroom background, which gives her a unique perspective.
Deborah earned a Master’s of Arts Degree in Corporate Communications with a concentration in Business from Seton Hall University, Stillman School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Rutgers University, New Brunswick with minors in English & Political Science.
A Jersey girl through and through, she was raised in Maplewood, is still a summer beach bum in Manasquan, a member of the Alumni Board at Columbia High School, loves sports, married to her husband Joe Kane, Jr. a graduate of Seton Hall Prep, and the daughter-in law of the late Dr. Joseph P Kane Sr. who worked happily everyday for 42 years at Seton Hall Prep and is the person who inspires Deborah to be in the classroom each day. Joe and Deborah have been blessed to be married for 28 years and have two children, Peter and Julie who are the lights of her life, shaping her to be the best teacher possible as Deborah is filled with compassion, empathy, energy, humor, and the words “I can’t” are not part of her world. As the children’s book “The Little Engine That Could” states… “ I think I can, I think I can, I think I can”... This is the mantra in her home and her classroom.
