The Roslyn School District has appointed Kristy Faulkner as the new social studies chairperson for secondary education. She will step into the role vacated by retiring Chairperson Paul Rosenboom.
Faulkner’s role will be to provide leadership and educational support to the dedicated team of social studies teachers at Roslyn Middle School and Roslyn High School.
“The Roslyn Board of Education and I were extremely pleased to find a candidate who fully understands and appreciates the challenges of creating a robust and rigorous curriculum,” Superintendent Allison Brown said. “She is ready and excited to support our remarkable faculty and motivated students. We can’t wait for her to bring her expertise and fresh ideas into our schools this fall!”
Faulkner began her teaching career at Half Hollow Hills School District and was most recently a secondary social studies teacher at the Bellmore-Merrick School District.
In addition to her strong background in curriculum and instruction, she has also co-authored three separate curriculum writing projects, created multiple social studies district finals and presented at the LICSS professional development conference. In 2020, she was honored with the PTA Founders’ Day Award.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts from St. Joseph’s College, a Master of Arts from SUNY Stony Brook and a Post Master’s Certificate from St. Joseph’s College.
