The Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Junior-Senior High School welcomes a new principal this year that comes from the Baldwinsville Central School District, Michelle Crisafulli.
Crisafulli previously taught in Baldwinsville for thirteen years and acted as the assistant principal of Charles W. Baker High School for three years and the principal for four years.
Her teaching and administrative degrees were earned from SUNY Oswego.
Crisafulli said she loved working in Baldwinsville, but she was ready for a new opportunity and a different experience.
The size and closeness of the APW community was what drew her to the district.
“A friend recommended this district to me so I spent a little time here,” said Crisafulli. “The people here are amazingly friendly.”
Crisafulli beamed with excitement as she spoke about ideas and plans for the APW Junior-Senior High School. She expressed a desire to get students excited about learning and to be proud of their school as well as making sure each student has the 21st century skills that will help them to be college and career-ready upon graduation.
On a personal note, Crisafulli enjoys the outdoors, gardening and reading.
She also has a passion for technology and traveling.
She and her husband, Jim, currently reside in Tully, NY.
