He will begin in his new position on December 5 at a salary of $115,000.

As the former special education principal for Sullivan County BOCES, he excelled as an instructional leader as he helped guide teachers and staff to greater heights of success.

“As an educator, I believe firmly in the importance, power and necessity of education,” said Mr. Pulley. “Great achievements are only accomplished through the vision, hard work and persistence of a great team. I look forward to being a member of the Monticello team and community.”

Mr. Pulley received his Certificate in Educational Administration from SUNY Fredonia, a Master of Social Work from Syracuse University and a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Cornell University. He is originally from Western NY and presently lives in Rock Hill with his wife, Gayle. He has five adult children and four grandchildren, two with Down syndrome.
