NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - When New Rochelle schools open their doors to students next month, there will be a new iook at the top after the district shuffled its administrative ranks.
District officials announced that veteran educator Amy Goodman would be taking her talents from the Greenburgh-Graham Union Free School District - where she served as superintendent - to serve as New Rochelle’s interim assistant superintendent for student support services, replacing Diane Massimo, who retired this summer after nearly three decades with the district.
“Amy has more than 20 years of district-level special education leadership experience,” New Rochelle schools Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne stated. “She is highly qualified to build on the successes that have been established in the New Rochelle schools, while helping to recruit a top-notch educational administrator to take the position on a permanent basis.”
“I’m very excited to have been chosen to serve the New Rochelle school district,” Goodman said. “I have always strived to work in an environment that is highly engaging and very diverse. I know that New Rochelle’s practices are already responsive to the unique strengths and needs of every student and I want to continue along that path.”
New Rochelle School House IV Principal Michael Hilderbrand is set to become the new assistant principal at Trinity Elementary, with former Ardsley Union Free School District Treasurer coming to New Rochelle to fill the same position. Former interim Director of Technology Dante Santora has been named as the Assistant Director for Network Operations and Support.
“I began my career here in New Rochelle because of the District’s dedication to supporting a diverse community of learners,” Hilderbrand said. “That dedication continues to keep me here. As I move to Trinity Elementary, I am excited support students as they begin their journey as lifelong learners.”
