Mr. Vincent Fondacaro
I hope you had an exciting yet restful summer! I am so excited to join the Freehold Borough family as a Health & PE teacher and Head Baseball Coach. My favorite thing about working with young people is teaching life lessons through sports while also creating positive life-long habits in Health & PE. I'm confident that my professional experiences have prepared me to support FIS/FAE students in achieving their mental, physical, and emotional goals.
Prior to joining the Freehold Borough School District, I taught K-5 Health & PE in Randolph. In Randolph I helped integrate our "Respectful Recess" program, revised Health curriculum, and was a member of the Diversity Committee. I also coached the Randolph High School varsity baseball team to as high as a #15 ranking in New Jersey. Prior to teaching and coaching in Randolph, I taught Health & PE at St. Mary High School in Rutherford, NJ and Bradford Preparatory School in Charlotte, NC.
My first career was as a college baseball coach. I spent time as a coach and recruiting coordinator at both Montclair State University and The University at Albany for five years. I've developed two All-Americans, a dozen professional players, six Major League Baseball draft picks that are currently in the minor leagues, and three players that currently play at the Major League level. My 2018 recruiting class was the #2 ranked recruiting class in the country. I am still involved in the game as a middle school coach, travel ball coach where I train players and manage relationships between players and college coaches, and offer private instruction. I graduated from William Paterson University in 2013 where I was on the Dean's List and captained the baseball team.
I am fully devoted to the symbiotic relationship and responsibility that comes with being your child's role-model as both a teacher and coach at Freehold Intermediate School. In both positions, I am eager to develop meaningful connections to support the organic development of all students in the district. I look forward to making the 2023-2024 school year a safe, energetic, and fun one.
