Carol Grima has been appointed Assistant Principal of the Nassau BOCES Rosemary Kennedy School in Wantagh. She will be responsible for the lower grades at the school where she will oversee student performance, assist the principal and support the curriculum.

Ms. Grima started her teaching career at the Ascent School in Deer Park, a private school specializing in individuals with autism. It was here that she worked as part of a team providing students with 1:1 instruction following the principles of applied behavior analysis.

She then went on to the John Street School in the Franklin Square UFSD as a Special Education teacher for a self-contained class. After 10 years in the classroom she became the building and district level intern for the school. It was during this internship that she took on administrative roles. This experience allowed her to introduce new curriculum, pilot an interactive learning medium, develop a peer reading group and implement a district-wide parent workshop.

 “After 11 years it just became evident that I wanted to reach a larger population, says Grima of her decision to come to Nassau BOCES.

 Ms. Grima holds a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Language Pathology from Queens College, a master’s degree with dual certification in Education/CASE Program from LIU-Post and a Certificate in Applied Behavior analysis from Hofstra University.
