Middle School Vice Commandant

The Middle School Vice Commandant acts primarily as the Head of School for Middle School Operations and is the primary administrator to work with Middle School students and parents.  Additionally the Middle School Vice Commandant serves as the Chief Information Officer and Data Coordinator for both the High School and the Middle School.  In addition to fulfilling data requirements placed upon the school by NYSED, I work with faculty in analyzing data to drive instruction and to assist them in developing pre- and post-assessments for non-regents courses.  
I am in my 15th year here at Maritime and am the only staff member to have been here from the very beginning back in 2004, taking time away in 2008-2009 for military service in Afghanistan.  I fully embrace, and am driven to fulfill, the mission and vision of our school.  I truly consider it an honor to serve my community and country by doing my part to forge productive and engaged citizens.
