Meet new GHS Assistant Principal Mr. Kyle Roddey

The start of every new school year brings excitement and new faces and this year at Goshen Central School District is no different. For the 2018-19 school year, Goshen is welcoming eight new teachers and administrators to its ranks.

Our new employees have been working for months to create a smooth transition into the new school year and we’re looking forward to their positive contributions to our Goshen team. We know you’ll take the time to get to know individual teachers and staff members as you meet them, but here’s a quick introduction to the new Goshen High School (GHS) Assistant Principal, Mr. Kyle Roddey.

A familiar face to the people of Goshen, Mr. Kyle Roddey will hang his hat as Mayor of Goshen, a position he’s held since 2011, to devote his time to the students and school community as an assistant principal at GHS. In this new role, he will oversee matters related to discipline, teacher observation and school climate. For the time being, he will also fulfill the duties of Ms. Patricia Pagnotta-Lercara, who has taken a leave of absence.

Mr. Roddey, a graduate of Goshen High School, said that it was his time spent as a “Goshen Gladiator” that led him to see a strong value in public service.

“I’m looking forward to working collaboratively with our administrative team to support our students, families and building staff,” he said. “Each day, I’ll work hard to help students become the best version of themselves they can be.”

Before joining the Goshen Central School District, Mr. Roddey taught eighth-grade social studies at Twin Towers Middle School in the Middletown School District. There, he was also the acting dean of students at Twin Towers Middle School during an administrative internship.
