VCS Names New Assistant Principal for Early Childhood School

On Thursday, July 8, 2021, the Victor Central School District Board of Education appointed Laura Reynolds as the new Assistant Principal for the Early Childhood School effective July 12, 2021. Reynolds replaces Melissa Goho who left earlier this month to become the Principal at the Dansville Primary School. 

Reynolds comes to the Early Childhood School from the Penfield Central School District where she has spent the past 16 years as an elementary special education teacher and the past year completing an administrative internship at Harris Hill Elementary School.  

In her role as a special education teacher, Ms. Reynolds has been a resource room teacher, self-contained teacher, and a Response to Intervention consultant. 

As an administrative intern, Reynolds led the staff through a book study on culturally responsive teaching, developed protocols and multimodal resources that empowered grade level teams to analyze data and best practices, enhanced family and school partnerships by auditing the school’s current communication processes and cultivated positive relationships with staff that resulted in new initiatives that support improved instructional practice. 

VCS Superintendent, Tim Terranova said Ms. Reynolds’ instructional knowledge and ability to take this knowledge and implement it will be a significant asset at our Early Childhood School. 

“I am ecstatic to join the Early Childhood School community and support success for our youngest learners both socially and academically.  I look forward to building relationships with staff, students, and families,” Reynolds said.

Ms. Reynolds earned her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and New York State Certification in Childhood Education and Special Education (Grades 1-6) from LeMoyne College and a Masters of Science in Literacy Education (Birth-6) from Nazareth College. She is set to complete her Advanced Certification in School District/School Building Leadership from University of Rochester Warner School of Education this August.
