Career Preparatory High School appoints new administrator
Sabrina Caminero has been appointed as Assistant Principal of the Nassau BOCES Career Preparatory High School. She will serve as the right hand to the principal in the management of daily operations, as well as the implementation of the school’s instructional program, while helping to maintain and expand career and technical education.
Sabrina began her educational career as a teaching artist with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s ORCHKids, a year-round, during- and after-school music program designed to create social change. In addition to teaching a comprehensive general music curriculum, she worked with colleagues to organize concerts and other special events.
From there, she became a music teacher with Maryland’s Anne Arundel County Public School System. She was welcomed in that same capacity by the New York City School System, and again by Nassau BOCES. After serving the agency as a music teacher at the Center for Community Adjustment (CCA), she took an administrative internship at the center and was eventually named Coordinator of the CCA’s Extended Year Program. In this capacity, she collaborated with school leaders to develop and implement various programs and worked with teachers to ensure that the curriculum aligned with students’ individualized educational plans.
Ms. Caminero earned a master’s degree in music, as well as a bachelor’s degree in music and music education, from the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University. From this prestigious institution she also earned a Peabody Career Development Grant and received the Johns Hopkins Diversity in Leadership Award. Over six consecutive years of her studies, she earned a place on the Peabody Conservatory Dean’s List. She was also inducted into the prestigious Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, which is only open to the top 20 percent of those entering the field of education.
Ms. Caminero is currently finishing her doctoral degree at Seton Hall University's Education Leadership, Management and Policy Program. Her topic explores professional learning communities and teacher burnout.
She also holds New York State certification in school district and building leadership, as well as in teaching. Sabrina is a certified registered behavior technician, holds certification in crisis prevention intervention, and is a certified teacher in Maryland State.
“As a passionate educator and school leader, I am committed to serving the students of Nassau BOCES,” said Ms. Caminero. “I look forward to working with the faculty, staff and administration at Career Preparatory High School to foster the social and emotional growth of our students, and to help them to succeed both vocationally and academically.”
