With the start of the 2019-2020 school year, newly appointed principals are preparing to meet their school communities and to assume the diverse and challenging role of leadership.
Two new diocesan high school principals will begin their role this upcoming school year.
St. John’s Preparatory School, Astoria
St. John’s Preparatory School, Astoria, welcomes new principal Maria Johnson. She served for 34 years in the St. John’s Prep community, including as a social studies teacher, social studies chairperson and assistant principal of student life.
“The legacy of a St. John’s Prep education is the development of a deep and abiding sense of faith, the creation of a school culture that is welcoming and supportive of all students and serves as the inspiration for a life-long journey of learning,” she stated.
St. Saviour H.S., Park Slope
St. Saviour H.S., Park Slope, welcomes new principal Carolann Timpone. Before coming to the Brooklyn high school, she was a teacher at both St. Bartholomew School, Elmhurst, and St. Matthias School, Ridgewood.
She then became the dean of students for 17 years at the former Stella Maris H.S., Rockaway Park. Since 1998, she held leadership roles at Christ the King R.H.S., Middle Village.
“I am excited and honored that Father Frank believes that I can contribute to the rich history and traditions at St. Saviour H.S. I look forward to joining my colleagues and community members in creating our preferred future and affirming our spirited heritage.”
