Dear Locust Valley Community,
It is with great enthusiasm that I begin my new position as the Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics in the Locust Valley School District. I am both humbled and honored to join a school system with a rich history of high quality, district wide academic, athletic and arts programs. I can assure you that I will work diligently to uphold and enhance the ideals of the distinguished Locust Valley school community as a great place to live, learn and grow.
Prior to beginning my position in Locust Valley, I was privileged to serve as the Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics in the Port Jefferson School District. Prior to entering administration, I taught physical education in the Longwood School District, where I also coached several sports teams at the modified, junior varsity and varsity levels. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Cortland, a Master of Arts degree from Stony Brook University and completed my administrative coursework at Touro College. I received my Doctor of Education designation from St. John’s University.
I had the opportunity to become acclimated to my new position while working alongside Interim Athletic Director, Joseph Pennacchio. With his guidance, I have met several of the members of the physical education and health staff, as well as many of our coaches. Together with this incredible team, school administration and supportive community, I am confident that we can build on the strong foundation already in place.
I look forward to a collaborative and collegial partnership with all of you, as I believe that successful partnerships can help our students continue to reach great heights on the courts, fields and most importantly in their academic classrooms. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the athletic office at 516-277-5175.
Danielle Turner, Ed.D.
