VALHALLA, N.Y. – A Dix Hills educator will be the next principal at Valhalla Middle School, officials announced Wednesday.
Roberto Trigosso will begin his new job on June 24, replacing Steven Garcia. Garcia left to become the assistant superintendent of the Pelham Union Free School District.
“I am delighted to appoint Roberto Trigosso as the new principal at VMS,” Superintendent Brenda Myers said in a statement. “His expertise in teaching and learning, coupled with his skills in building culture and rapport, will be a tremendous asset to our district. During the search process, Roberto clearly demonstrated a student-centered vision for our middle school and an unyielding passion for education.”
Trigosso comes from the Half Hollow Hills Central School District in Dix Hills, N.Y., where he served as an assistant principal and a Spanish teacher. Trigosso also supervised the special education, ESL and world languages programs in the district.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the students and staff in Valhalla and look forward to becoming part of a successful community,” he said.
Trigosso earned a bachelor's degree from Stony Brook University, a master's degree from Touro College and an advanced certificate program in educational supervision administration from Hunter College. He is currently a doctoral candidate at Fordham University.
