Our School

Sleepy Hollow Middle School

Sleepy Hollow Middle School consists of 6th through 8th graders and a dedicated faculty. We’re steeped in history and made up of many different nationalities, languages, and cultures. We utilize a TEAM model, with two teams per grade and a core group of teachers. All students from Sleepy Hollow Middle School enter Sleepy Hollow High School with at least two high school credits.

Every September we host “Noone Eats Alone Day,” where we combine all three grades and have a giant picnic to welcome students to the new academic year. Our crown jewel of events is a three-day trip to Washington D.C. taken by our 8th grade students.

As an educator, I am privileged to serve as Assistant Principal, with a long-standing commitment to the district since 2004. One of the aspects that truly sets the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns apart is its remarkable diversity, which I wholeheartedly embrace and value.


As someone who has personally experienced the journey of learning a second language, I approach education with utmost reverence. Drawing upon my own experiences and embracing my rich cultural background, I strive to establish meaningful connections with my students. I value these connections that don’t end in June but have continued well into college and after for so many of my previous students.


My journey within the district initially began with my dedicated efforts to establish the Dual Language program, a testament to the value I place on bilingualism and inclusivity. Over time, my passion has evolved to encompass teaching science and instilling a profound appreciation for our environment, fostering a genuine love for learning amongst my students.
