Kristin Bergin to serve as administrative intern in the capacity of assistant principal at Queensbury Elementary School for the remainder of the school year
Beginning in January, Kristin Bergin will serve as the administrative intern in the capacity of assistant principal of Queensbury Elementary School (QES) for the remainder of the school year. Bergin is currently a health education teacher at Queensbury High School (QHS) and the K-12 health education department chair. Bergin is completing her administrative degree at SUNY Plattsburgh. Bergin is replacing assistant principal Maggie Kelly, who was recently named the elementary principal at North Warren.
Bergin will work alongside Jessica Rossetti, who has served as QES principal since 2016. Among her many duties, Bergin will assist with the planning and organization of all school-related activities; work with the principal on the development, revision and evaluation of the curriculum; assist with the orientation of newly assigned/hired staff members; and maintain active two-way communication with students, parents and community members.
"I am incredibly excited to work with the dedicated faculty and staff at Queensbury Elementary School,” said Bergin. “Together, we will support all of the students and families at QES.”
Bergin has been a health education teacher at QHS since 2003. During her teaching tenure, she actively engaged high school students in the New York state health curriculum through diverse and multi-disciplined knowledge and skills-based education. Bergin focused on risk reduction and improving the health and wellness of all her students.
“Kristin brings a variety of transferable skills to the elementary setting,” said QES principal Jessica Rossetti. “We are very fortunate to have her join our staff. Her skills and past experiences will ensure that the education, health and wellbeing of our students continues to be top priorities in the QES environment.”
Since April 2015, Bergin has served as the K-12 health education department chair. During her time as chair, Bergin coordinated health education initiatives and educational programming for students and families throughout the district, collaborated with community professionals to provide health and wellness opportunities for families, and coordinated with educators and community agencies to implement nutrition programs for students in grades K-12.
“Kristin has been a remarkably impactful teacher at Queensbury High School for many years,” said Superintendent Doug Huntley. “She’s also served the district very well as the health education department chair. Kristin has created several important initiatives in the district and has always been a source of current and relevant information regarding health education topics. We’re looking forward to her contributions at the elementary school.”
