The Rye Neck Schools Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Tara Napoleoni Goldberg as principal of Daniel Warren Elementary School. Napoleoni Goldberg joins Rye Neck from Public School 183 in District 2 in the New York City Department of Education where she has served as principal for seven years. 
 
"I am pleased to have Napoleoni Goldberg join us as principal,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Barbara Ferraro said. “Her extensive educational and administrative experience, philosophy and skills will be an asset to our community. She understands the multitude of roles, responsibilities and relationships that it takes to successfully lead a school community. She believes in creating a joyful learning environment where students engage in natural curiosities and wonders, while teachers skillfully scaffold instruction so that students can grow independently as readers, writers, researchers, scientists and mathematicians.”
 
During her time at Public School 183, Napoleoni Goldberg established school-wide instructional focus and goals, collaborated with consultants to plan professional development to deepen the curriculum and worked closely with the PTA to organize events geared toward community celebrations. Napoleoni Goldberg formerly served as assistant principal at Public School 183 and Public School 197. 
 
She has also worked in Public Schools 184 and 134 as a literacy coach whose responsibilities included supporting school goals through professional development, facilitating workshops for staff and parents based on school and community needs and assisting in the development and implementation of an integrated balanced literacy curriculum. Prior to this role, she was a teacher for eight years. She was deeply involved in developing a caring and nurturing student-centered learning environment and tailoring instruction based on her students’ needs. 
 
Mrs. Napoleoni Goldberg earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Russell Sage College, her Master of Arts in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State University and her leadership certification through Baruch College. 
 
She will step into the position on July 1, 2017.
