— C.J. Hooker Middle School has a new assistant principal this year.

Heather Carman will begin her new position as assistant principal on Sept. 2. She is replacing former assistant principal John Piscitella, who took a principal position in another school district.

“I’m very excited to come to Goshen,” she said. “It feels like coming home.”

While an undergraduate, Carman completed her field experience at Goshen, working in both the middle and high schools. She returned to complete her administrative internship at Goshen High School while pursuing her master’s degree.

“When completing my field experience and internship at Goshen, I felt very connected to the staff and community,” said Carman. “Goshen strives for excellence, has a great reputation, and cares about the kids and its community. It’s truly my dream job.”

Carman received a bachelor of science in education and a master of science in education from SUNY Cortland. She then obtained her Educational Administrator Certificate of Advanced Study from SUNY New Paltz. Before coming to Goshen, she served as assistant principal/dean of students at Sullivan County BOCES and dean of students at Lincoln Hall Ives School in Lincolndale. In addition to her administrative positions, she taught physical education and health at Greenwood Lake, where she also served as athletic director.

Carman is a graduate of Middletown High School. She always knew she wanted to be an educator.

“I had a strong support system when I was in school,” she said. “I had a lot of great teachers and a wonderful principal who took me under their wing. It allowed me to see the other side of what educators do outside the classroom — how they care and look out for their students. It motivated me.”

Carman looks forward to her new position and forming strong relationships with the students, staff and community.

“I'm excited to join a new team and work with them to build upon the excellence already present at the C. J. Hooker Middle School,” she said.
