Manor is student centered and believes every child can learn and should be expected to reach and exceed his or her academic and social potential. That should be done by focusing on strengths and providing the most targeted interventions and supports if academic and social deficits arise.
Relationship building is critical to ensure student success, Manor said.
“Building positive relationships between all stakeholders in a school community is imperative.”
For the past two years, Manor has served as Middle School Assistant principal for Beekmantown Central School.
Prior to that position, she was assistant high school principal at Saranac Central School for about two years.
Manor received a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master of science degree from Plattsburgh State. She completed additional graduate course work through Plattsburgh State and the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.
She holds a permanent 7-12 biology teaching certification and a New York State School District Administrator Certificate.
Manor enjoys spending time with family and is an avid outdoor and fitness enthusiast. She has completed in 12 marathons and is currently training for the Marine Corps Marathon in October.
“Mrs. Manor’s experience and education background will enable her to immediately build upon the excellent academic reputation of Saranac Elementary,” said Superintendent Kenneth Cringle. “I enthusiastically look forward to working with Mrs. Manor as we strive toward increasing achievement and success for all students.”
