  • The St. Johnsville Board of Education has appointed longtime district math teacher Connie DaBiere as interim principal of D.H. Robbins Elementary School.
    DaBiere has been a math teacher in the St. Johnsville Central School District since 1983 and has taught students in grades 4-12 during her tenure.
    A 1979 graduate of St. Johnsville Junior - Senior High School, DaBiere earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in elementary education from the State University of New York at Oneonta and completed her school building and district administrative certifications at the College of Saint Rose in 2010 and 2011.
    “We’re fortunate to have someone like Mrs. DaBiere who has the skills, certification and familiarity with the district to guide our elementary building through this period of transition,” Superintendent Laura Campione Lawrence said in a news release.
    The district sought candidates for the position and interviewed two finalists before making the appointment Friday.
    Monday was DaBiere’s first day as interim principal. Her appointment runs until June.
    A long-term certified math teacher substitute will assume DaBiere’s teaching responsibilities.
    D.H. Robbins Elementary Principal Christopher Fatta remains on paid administrative leave. St. Johnsville and Hamilton-Fulton-Montgomery BOCES officials have not disclosed the reason for the action, only to say it did not involve criminal activity or students. Camipone Lawrence previously said the district would have no comment of Fatta’s status.
    Fatta was appointed D.H. Robbins principal during the middle of the 2011 - 2012 school year.
