Stewart Manor Welcomes Mr. Marner
A familiar face in the Elmont School District community has joined the administrative ranks at Stewart Manor School — former Alden Terrace School teacher Nathaniel Marner has been named assistant principal.
Mr. Marner began teaching sixth grade at Alden Terrace in 2014. In addition to his teaching schedule, he held administrative responsibilities at the school, including organizing professional development, hosting parent workshops and conferences, mentoring new teachers and training staff members on new district initiatives. During the summers of 2016-2018, Mr. Marner served as assistant principal for the district’s Summer Enrichment Program, where he collaborated and assisted the principal in daily operations, created schedules for teachers and teacher’s aides, and mentored fellow colleagues. In 2019, he served as principal of the program.
Prior to his time in Elmont, Mr. Marner taught kindergarten at the Academy Charter School in Hempstead. His responsibilities extended outside the classroom. Mr. Marner assisted in improving the student and parent handbooks, hosted parent workshops, created and assisted in mapping out the kindergarten curriculum and more.
Mr. Marner has a Bachelor of Science in childhood and special education from the State University of New York at Old Westbury and a Master of Science in literacy and education, grades k-6 from Queens College, City University of New York. He also holds a Master of Science in school building leadership and a school district leadership advanced certificate from Mercy College. He is currently pursuing his doctorate in educational leadership for diverse learning communities at Molloy College.
“Mr. Marner is a highly motivated educator who has much to share with students and faculty,” Principal Hope Kranidis said. “He has already begun to get to know and work with students, teachers and parents. He provides a great role model for our students, and we are pleased to have him as a member of our Stewart Manor family.” Mr. Marner is excited about his new position and the opportunity to build new relationships with students, parents and colleagues.
“I am looking forward to working with the students, teachers, Mrs. Kranidis, the PTA and the community as a whole,” he said.
