It is my honor to be joining the Stockbridge Valley learning community this fall as your 7-12 interim principal. From 2006 - 2016 I served as the neighboring superintendent at Morrisville-Eaton and had the pleasure of collaborating on many important initiatives that benefitted students in both of our districts. Since retiring I served as an interim superintendent and elementary principal in Afton, and prior to M-E I was the secondary principal in Madison, and taught high school social studies for 22 years in Central NY.
I know Mrs. Stocker and the Board of Education are committed to finding a permanent principal in the coming months and getting him or her into the school and getting to know the students and community. In the meantime I look forward to providing a smooth transition period. During that time I will make every effort to get to know the students and encourage them to make the most of their education at Stockbridge Valley. I also look forward to working with the entire educational staff as we focus on the district’s mission of empowering students through education.
I am excited to begin this journey, and look forward to meeting many of you this fall.
Mike Drahos, SVCS Interim 7-12 principal
