Leadership Insight with Susan Gately

Susan Gately has been the principal of Farmingville Elementary for eleven years. Prior to that she was a teacher. She is also a parent. Bringing these perspectives together has contributed to a school environment that is best summarized by the school motto, “Farmingville, where good things grow.” Concepts such as “growth mindset” and “personalized learning” and “meeting a child where he/she is at” are living, breathing realities at FES. For our leadership insight this month we focused on “personalized learning.” What does it look like in action? Read the full article. View the FES Press December newsletter.
