Chase Elementary School principal at a salary of $107,500. Mr. Frandino will begin in the district on July 1, 2012.

Chase’s current principal, Susan Gottlieb, will be retiring this summer.

In his last position as principal of the Hyde Park Elementary School, Mr. Frandino proved to be a strong instructional leader whose collaboration with teachers, parents and the community was instrumental in increasing student achievement.

In addition, Mr. Frandino served Hyde Park CSD as its director of mathematics and science for five years and worked for the Onteora School District for nine years as a secondary math and physics teacher.

“I look forward to being part of the Chase Elementary School family and the Monticello school community,” said Mr. Frandino. “During my career I have found that positive reinforcement and self-reflection are part of the recipe for high quality instruction and learning.”

Mr. Frandino received his certificate in education administration, a master’s degree in teaching with a focus on science and mathematics, and a bachelor’s in physics from SUNY Plattsburgh. He is certified in New York State as an administrator and a physics and math teacher, grades 7-12.

Mr. Frandino lives in Kingston, NY with his wife, Megan, and their three children, Gaetano, Esabella and Rocco.
