Welcome to Region Four,
We would like to introduce ourselves to our colleagues in Region IV. Jay Hillman and I, Kathleen Hansen, will be the co-directors for the Southern Tier. Jay was the Middle School Principal/Assistant Principal at Horseheads Middle School from 2002 until 2009. While Principal, he was actively involved in implementing Essential Elements in his building. Currently, he is the Director of Educational Services at Elmira. He served on the Planning Committee for the NYSMSA Annual Conference held in Watkins Glen in 2009, and was the Co- chair for the 2016 NYSMSA Annual Conference at Watkins Glen. Kathleen Hansen was the principal in Oxford Middle School for over ten years. She has been in public education for 20 years. Kathleen has been involved with the Middle School Association since 2006.
We are very excited to work with the New York State Middle School Association and bring more opportunities for middle level educators to collaborate in our region.
Jay and I look forward to 2017-2018 and getting to know the educators in our region. Please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions to share.
