The District is pleased to welcome Nicole Waldbauer as the new Director of Humanities.

Ms. Waldbauer began her educational career in the South Huntington School District, where she taught English, coached field hockey and supervised the school’s literary magazine for 10 years. Her enjoyment working with students led to her work as a mentor to new teachers, acting as a cooperating teacher to aspiring teachers and instructing in-service courses. These actions helped inspire her to become an administrator.

She also served as a supervisor of English and reading in the Rocky Point and Three Village school districts, and for the past six years she was the K-12 director of English, reading and libraries in the Wantagh School District.

Ms. Waldbauer has also been an executive board member since 2005 of the Long Island Language Arts Council, a professional networking organization for which she is a past president and webmaster.

She earned her undergraduate degree from Dowling College, a Master of Arts in liberal studies with a concentration in TESOL from Stony Brook University and a Master of Administrative Science from the College of New Rochelle.

“We welcome Ms. Waldbauer’s expertise and look forward to her leadership in helping to drive exceptional outcomes for our staff and students,” Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole said.
