A Message from our D14 Acting Superintendent David Cintron
Dear District 14 Community,
It is my honor to have the opportunity to serve as the new District 14 Acting Superintendent. Throughout my twenty-two years with the New York City Department of Education, I have served in a variety of roles in both elementary and middle school education as teacher, staff developer, assistant principal, school support specialist, and most recently as principal and principal coach.
A core value that guides my work is that all students have the potential to learn and to achieve excellence, and thus my work has been centered on motivating others to challenge themselves to take risks to achieve greater happiness and success throughout life. You will quickly learn that I am staunchly dedicated to improving student success by developing and sustaining school cultures dedicated to learning, innovation, and equity for all children. Therefore, I will work to:
· Safeguard that all members of the community feel safe, respected, and included.
· Ensure that our schools work hard, and take personal responsibility for the success of the entire community.
· Ensure that we are working together to remove barriers to student learning with an understanding that we can achieve more together than we can on our own.
· Model, support, and hold ourselves accountable for continual improvement across the district.
I am eager to get to work on behalf of all students and families of District 14, however, I also understand that the foundation for strong collaboration is trust, mutual accountability, and transparency. Therefore, I have begun my listening and learning tour of District 14 and am looking forward to connecting with you to learn more about our strengths and challenges to better inform our priorities and plans for the district.
Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to the journey that lies ahead for us!
