I have the privilege of leading P.S. 1 The Bergen School as the IA Principal for this new school year 2020. I am a multilingual language learner who attended P.S. 169 and P.S. 94 in Sunset Park. My passion for working with young students led me to pursue a career in teaching. I began my career as a substitute teacher and then pursued a teaching degree in bilingual education. As the years passed, I wanted to have a greater impact on a larger number of students and teachers; hence, I pursued an administrative degree. In 2014, I joined P.S. 1's administrative and instructional team. I look forward to continuing being an advocate for all our students. Currently we are dealing with unprecedented times in the world and in education. I am confident that my team and I will be able to provide the support that our school community and our families need to make any transition less stressful. Thank you for allowing me to support all efforts and work towards a better tomorrow.
It is an honor for me to be serving as Principal of PS24. I have dedicated the past eighteen and a half years to serving the PS24 community as a parent, advocate, teacher and literacy coach. Throughout my tenure at 24, I have built lasting relationships with my students' families and the Sunset Park community. I believe that people learn from those they know care about them and respect them. I will continue to ensure that we nurture the whole child and that all of our students have an equitable education. We got this 24! - Maria Diaz, Principal P.S. 24
