The Principal's Desk
As the principal of Southern Westchester BOCES’ Tappan Hill School program, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families. It is wonderful to be a part of the Tappan Hill community, where teachers, students and parents work collaboratively to support academic, behavioral and social-emotional growth. Our outstanding staff eagerly await the start of the new school year.
At Tappan Hill, we are committed to supporting parents and working together to achieve the strongest possible outcomes for their students.
I encourage all families and staff to become active members in our Southern Westchester BOCES Special Education Parent Teacher Association. In SEPTA we place an emphasis on topics surrounding special education and the lives of families with children who have special needs. The organization is led by parents, educators and administrators, and we host several informative events during the school year.
Programs at Tappan Hill include five AIIM classes, four MD classes and one Intensive Day Treatment class. Our aim is to create a compassionate, supportive and stimulating environment that encourages independence and confidence in every one of our students.
I am honored to serve as the principal of Tappan Hill School. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss an idea or to share any questions or concerns you might have.
I look forward to working with you and assisting each of our students in meeting their goals this school year.
