Nicole Ey, Assistant Principal at Anna S. Kuhl Elementary School (ASK), has been named the 2017 New York State Elementary Assistant Principal of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS) and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP). This award is given annually to a school administrator who excels at leadership, commitment, and action.

“Nicole Ey is a leader we are proud to call our own. Nicole takes pride in the fact that when she has an idea, she not only puts that idea into motion, but also stands alongside with others to see it through.” Said Port Jervis City School District Superintendent Thomas M. Bongiovi.

Nicole Ey has been assistant principal at ASK since 2012. During her tenure she has developed and implemented many new educational initiatives and programs. Most notable, Ey developed the “Outdoor Learning Classroom”, transforming an unused courtyard into a beautiful, interactive outdoor learning classroom. She’s also developed a building-wide incentive plan to improve behavior. This strategy has seen immediate success, with improved attendance and morale.

Ey has her Administrative Certificate from C.W. Post/Long Island University, Master’s Degree in Special Education from Mount Saint Mary College, and Bachelor’s Degree from SUNY Oswego. She is a proud Port Jervis High School alum, graduating in 1998.
