WELCOME TO NYSMSA
NYSMSA began in New York State in 1980 serving the needs of adults working with middle-level youth. NYSMSA supports teachers, administrators, parents and others in an effort to provide services to youth between the ages of ten and fifteen. NYSMSA is governed by officers and directors elected from across New York State.
New York State Middle School Assocation Hall of Fame
At our two most recent Annual Conferences (2018 and 2019), we at the NYS Middle School Association were proud to add five new members to our state's Middle Level Hall of Fame. Joining the inaugural inductee Connie Toepfer were Dennis Tosetto (2018), Dr. David Payton (2018), Ross Burkhardt (2019), Dr. Jeanette Stern (2019), and Tom Kane (2019). If you are familiar with the history of Middle Level Education in our state, you will agree the current Hall of Fame includes the Giants in our field.
