“I am honored and very excited to be serving as the incoming President of Staten Island Hebrew Public. The opportunity to serve with fellow board members and staff to launch a new charter school on Staten Island and under the Hebrew Public banner is exceptional. I look forward to working closely with staff, board members, and the community to bring this extraordinary educational concept to Staten Island.”
