Sam Biswas has joined John Jay High School’s leadership team as Assistant Principal. He will be working alongside Dr. Siciliano, Principal, and Assistant Principals Kim Piccolino and Vincent Bell.
“Mr. Biswas impressed us with his knowledge of instruction and his dedication to seeing all students achieve at high levels,” said Dr. Siciliano. “Over the past seventeen years, he has held various instructional and administrative positions centered around science education at the high school and middle school levels.”
Mr. Biswas spent the early years of his career as a New York City science teacher. Most recently he has been Assistant Principal for science and health careers at Richmond Hill High School, in Queens. For four years prior, he was Curriculum Associate for middle and high school science and technology at the Deer Park schools, on Long Island.
“I’m honored and excited to be welcomed into the Katonah-Lewisboro family,” said Mr. Biswas. “I look forward to supporting the district’s STREAM initiatives to develop a rewarding student experience that integrates science, technology, research, engineering, the arts, and math.”
Mr. Biswas completed his Master of Arts in school leadership and administration at College of St. Rose, and his Master of Arts in psychology at Pace University. He expects to receive his doctorate in philosophy from Teachers College, Columbia University, in spring 2018.
On his down-time, Mr. Biswas and his family can be found at the Bronx Zoo, Muscoot Farm, or exploring a local playground. He enjoys cooking, photography, and tabletop gaming--as well as following the Pittsburgh Steelers and NY Mets.
“I have had opportunities to meet several parents, students and members of the community over the summer and am excited by the pride everyone has shown in being part of this school community,” said Mr. Biswas. “I look forward to working with the wonderful faculty and staff of John Jay to ensure that our students are prepared with the knowledge and skills that will lead to success both in high school and their journeys beyond.”
