Wendy Stafford, Principal

I am a high school graduate of Owego Free Academy, college graduate of Ithaca College (BFA) and have a Master’s degree from The Boston Conservatory (MFA).  I have been a music teacher in the public schools for 15 years and received my Fine Arts Director Certification from Fitchburg State College. I have almost completed my principal/administration (CAS) degree at Binghamton University with just my internship remaining. 

I am thrilled to be the new Education Coordinator at Hillel Academy.  As the Education Coordinator, I am dedicated to share my love for learning with the students.  At Hillel Academy, we have implemented the Common Core Standards and modules to align our curriculum with the public schools.  I will continue to work with the teachers, parents and students to adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of our students. 

Hillel Academy is a wonderful school that promotes individualized instruction in a small class setting.  The teachers at Hillel Academy have a standard of excellence and dedication that is commendable, to say the least.  Our staff promotes teamwork and teaches the whole child to love learning.  I am thrilled to be a part of such an excellent family.
