The Pine Bush Central School District has named Amy Brockner, the longtime
principal of Circleville Elementary School, as its new assistant superintendent for Instruction.
“We are just thrilled to have Amy Brockner step up as our new assistant superintendent for Instruction,” said Superintendent Tim Mains. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this integral position in our district. Amy has an exceptional ability to evaluate instructional programs. She has successfully collaborated on program development, implementation and monitoring, all vital roles for the assistant superintendent for Instruction.”
Brockner was a classroom teacher in Pine Bush and Tri-Valley Central Schools before serving as assistant principal in the Liberty Central School District for more than a decade. She returned to Pine Bush as assistant principal for one year before taking the helm at CES in 2014.
She has been instrumental in supporting and guiding teachers as they implemented new curriculum materials. Her mentorship for teachers and student teachers has contributed greatly to their personal success as educators as well as the success of their students.
“Serving as principal of Circleville Elementary School for the past six years has been a tremendous honor,” said Brockner. “The students, staff and entire CES community have helped me grow both personally and professionally.”
Assistant Superintendent Donna Geidel is retiring on July 24 after 33 years in the district, the last seven spent as assistant superintendent for Instruction. She also served as a teacher, assistant principal and principal during her career in Pine Bush.
Looking forward, Brockner is eager to take on her new role.
“I’m excited about this new opportunity to work with the entire Pine Bush community in a different capacity as we continue to build upon a strong foundation that enables our students to achieve personal success,” Brockner said.
