She earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and master’s degree in secondary education from the University of Scranton, and school building and district leadership certificates from the College of Saint Rose.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be in the position of curriculum associate for math and business,” said the Massapequa resident. “The students and staff of Deer Park display a great passion for education and I am elated to be part of such a wonderful community. My goal is to enhance the already present success of the district through a rigorous program for mathematics and business that requires critical thinking for a deep understanding.”

Deer Park High School sophomore Brandon Knapp was recently signed out to study abroad in Spain and play in a highly competitive soccer league for the Escuela de Futbol Huesca Academy’s team.

Prior to this calendar school year, Knapp played school soccer for Deer Park and travel league soccer for Northport. Two summers ago, he attended a soccer camp in Northport that featured five coaches from professional teams and academies in Spain, and was asked to visit Huesca to see academy life there and gain an understanding of the Spanish game. Upon completion of his visit, Knapp was invited to join the academy in the beginning of his sophomore year. He arrived in Spain on Aug. 14 for the beginning of preseason training, which included Spanish tutoring, practices, core exercises and weekend games. His academic school year at Huesca Academy began Sept. 13.
