President’s Message

Letter from the President of the New York Academy of Public Education:

Anthony Cavanna, Ed. D. - NYAPE

In these uncertain times there is one thing that I am sure of – I believe that this year will define us as educators as we rise to meet the challenges of educating our students in ways that differ from the past.

On behalf of the New York Academy Board of Directors, thank you for your partnership and for helping make education possible for all children during these difficult times. The opportunity is for us to grow and be better able to address the inequities in our educational systems and provide schools that meet the needs of all of our students. I believe our organization has the potential to make a substantial impact on the monumental changes that need to be implemented to serve our communities and especially our children; our students deserve no less.

I humbly accept the opportunity to serve as president of the New York Academy of Public Education (NYAPE) for the next two years. I applaud the work and support of my predecessor, Dr. Giovanna Delucchi, and welcome the newly elected officers: president elect, Mr. Michael Troy, executive director, Ms. Susan Barnes and treasurer, Ms. Catalina Castillo and recording secretary, Gina Mautschke-Mitchell. I look forward to working with the officers and the board of directors to serve the vision of the Academy:

The vision of the Academy is to create an agora for the exchange of ideas among educators who wish to encourage and uphold the promotion of the highest standards and ideals of Public Education in the Greater New York Metropolitan area.

Remember that the NYAPE Research Journal is published annually and can be found on our website. Please submit articles to our Research Journal Committee for review. In addition, look for our newsletters which review our meetings, activities and the accomplishments of our members.

Let me know how the academy can work to meet your expectations for educational excellence.

Be Well, Be Safe and Continue to Support Our Schools,

Anthony P. Cavanna, Ed.D.
New York Academy of Public Education
