Dear Bronxville Community,
I am honored to be the new Superintendent of the Bronxville School District. As we prepare for the upcoming school year, I look forward to connecting with all of you. A little background about myself, I am currently entering my 38th year in education having spent time as a classroom teacher, HS football and basketball coach, middle school principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent for the past 18 years, most recently in the Hastings-on-Hudson school district. I grew up in New Jersey and still live there with my wife, who is also a school superintendent.
Education has always been important in our family, as both my parents were educators - Mom a teacher and Dad a superintendent. I come from a family of seven children, and three of my older brothers were/are school superintendents as well. I also have an older sister who recently retired as a special education teacher. I should mention my other two siblings, an older brother who is a retired Navy captain and aviator and my younger sister who works at Novartis.
Although I have been in education 37 years, I have always appreciated the opportunity to learn, grow, and be challenged by new things, which is what led me to Bronxville. I am thrilled to be part of such an amazing community where education is so valued. I am looking forward to working together with such an outstanding staff and to further enhance and build upon the Bronxville Promise. As your superintendent, I look forward to learning from you and with you so that I can best understand and appreciate the norms, values and priorities of the Bronxville community.
As we enter the new school year, I look forward to working and connecting with you over the next several years as we set out together to build on the excellence that is Bronxville. I hope you will join me in discussions about education and our community. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out and say hello. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the summer months and I look forward to meeting you.
Roy R. Montesano Ed.D.
