Daniel Brady, New Assistant Principal.
Mr. Brady has served as the Assistant Principal of Woodlands Middle High School in the Greenburgh Central School District since 2020. At Woodlands, he is responsible for providing instructional leadership, administering the master schedule, and administering discipline. Prior to that, he served seven years as Principal, Assistant Principal, Dean and science teacher in Mount Vernon and as a teacher for five years in a parochial school in the Bronx, and in the New York City Public Schools.
Dr. Peter Giarrizzo, Superintendent of Schools, said, “As both a teacher and administrator, Mr. Brady has a strong background in effective instructional practices and has collaborated with faculty, staff, and families to meet the diverse needs of all students. He is committed to educating the whole child through rigorous instruction and to the development of life-long learners and leaders through sound educational and social-emotional practices.”
“Daniel will be a tremendous asset and resource for our high school community,” said Westlake Principal Keith Schenker. “Throughout the interview process, Daniel emerged as a leading candidate due to his student-centered, thoughtful, and highly detailed responses. His emphasis on the importance of meeting the academic, social, and management needs of all students truly resonated with the committee members in both rounds of interviews and his references confirmed that he had earned a high degree of trust from students, parents, and teachers in his previous positions.”
Dr. Giarrizzo added, “I am confident that Daniel will enhance and add to the WHS team. I have every expectation that he will quickly build relationships and that his work will be impactful across the total school program. Please join us in welcoming Mr. Daniel Brady to the Westlake family.”
Mr. Brady holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the College of Charleston, a Master of Science Degree in Childhood Education and a second Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership, both from Lehman College.
