For the upcoming school year, the Harborfields Central School District has brought on four new district administrators — Ms. Allison Joyce, Harborfields High School assistant principal; Ms. Maureen Raynor, executive director for human resources and instructional services; Ms. Rose Scammell, special education chairperson; and Dr. Robyn Tsoikos, assistant director for pupil personnel services.
Ms. Joyce joins the Harborfields district after more than seven years serving the Commack School District, where she was an accomplished secondary social studies teacher. Her role became effective on July 1.
Ms. Raynor returns to Harborfields after serving as a high school assistant principal in the Kings Park School District from 2016-2018. Prior to this, she was part of the Harborfields community as a math teacher from 2007-2016. During that time, she also served as a teacher on special assignment in the district office. Her role became effective July 16.
Ms. Scammell has served as the clinical administrator with ACLD-Children’s Services for the past 13 years and has gained the invaluable experience needed to make her the perfect candidate for the position of special education chairperson. In addition, she served as a speech therapist and speech evaluator for ACLD. Her new role came into effect on July 1.
Dr. Tsoikos comes to Harborfields after serving as a special education administrator in the Rocky Point School District. In addition to her experience there, she had extensive experience as a special education teacher in the Herricks School District. Her role became effective February 2018.
“We look forward to the 2018-19 school year and beyond with these exceptional administrators,” said Dr. Rory Manning, assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction and administration, “and are excited to have them become integral parts of the Harborfields family.”
