Dear P.S. 110 Community,
As your passionate leader, I am excited to enter my fifth year leading the P.S. 110 community and my twenty-first year working for NYC Public Schools. As many of you know, I am the daughter of a retired District 9 teacher and a Bronx native, so this role is extremely meaningful to me. As a school community, we worked collaboratively to revise our Harcourt reading curriculum to make it culturally responsive, implemented reading and digital interventions, and adopted the Illustrative Math program. We will continue to support our teachers with our school's priority focus: creating opportunities for scholar-led discussions with an equity lens to increase active intellectual engagement across the grades. Simply put, this means that our scholars learn best by making their thinking visible, posing questions, challenging each other's thinking, and building on each other's responses. As a restorative school, we strive to cultivate genius and empower scholars to thrive as responsible citizens and future leaders. This year, we will continue our school's S.T.E.A.M. instructional program, social-emotional learning curriculum, arts education, and various assemblies and trips throughout the school year at no cost to families. We will enhance our award-winning basketball program in the winter and spring. There will be a renewed focus on data-driven instruction, specifically making achievement data accessible and understood by teachers, scholars and families. Programs such as iReady will assist the school with this process. Last year, a team of teachers, leaders, and staff collaborated with F.A.C.E. and the District 9 Positive Learning Collaborative to promote a positive school culture, enhance our school's P.R.I.D.E framework, and plan parent empowerment activities. P.S. 110 prides itself on being a school community where scholars and families are welcomed and affirmed. I am eager to continue this journey together in partnership.
Principal P.S. 110
