Dawn Valle was recently appointed by the Board of Education as the new Director of Math, Science, Technology and Federal Grants K-12 for the district. She had served, since 2014, as Assistant Principal at Elwood Middle School. Valle previously worked as a principal for the New York City Department of Education, an Assistant Principal and math staff developer at the Math & Science Exploratory School, a math teacher and math department teacher leader at William Alexander Middle School, and a school and borough testing supervisor for the New York City Department of Education.
An Islip Terrace resident, Valle earned her bachelor’s degree at the College of Staten Island of the City University of New York, her master’s degree in school leadership at Touro College, and her advanced certification in District Leadership from Dowling College.
“I am excited to begin this new journey,” Valle said. “It has been wonderful to continue working with my colleagues and to be able to support them in new ways, including optimizing the funding provided by the federal grants. I am also looking forward to building new relationships with our staff members across the district and collaborating with them to enhance our instructional programs in math, science and technology.”
