EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Eastchester School District has selected Darrell Stinchcomb to serve as the new principal of Greenvale School.
Applicants for the position were put through a rigorous screening process that included six rounds of interviews.
“Mr. Stinchcomb impressed all of those who interviewed him during this process, and I am confident his innovative, intelligent, dynamic, and child-centered approach to leadership will take Greenvale School to another level of prominence," Superintendent Dr. Walter Moran said in a statement.
Once Stinchcomb was identified as the leading candidate, he participated in a classroom performance task at Greenvale. Following that, committee members visited Church Street School in White Plains where he currently serves as principal, to observe routines he has established there as well as to meet with 15 people, representing six different constituencies, with whom he currently works.
"I am so excited to be joining the Eastchester School District and community," Stinchcomb said in a statement. "I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, parents and students at Greenvale to continue building on the strong academic foundation and traditions. It is my life's work to help facilitate a well-rounded elementary education for all of the students."
Stinchcomb has also worked in White Plains as the Assistant Principal at George Washington Elementary School. Prior to that he was the Assistant Principal at the Inwood Intermediate School in the New York City Department of Education where he supervised the Special Education and Social Studies programs, Pupil Personnel Services and various other academic programs.
He received his B.A. in Education from Morehouse College and a M.A. in Educational Administration from New York University.
Stinchcomb will take over his new position at the start of the 2015-16 school year.
