Welcome to the Valley Central Middle School. My Name is Alicia Gannello and I am one of the Assistant Principals. I am a graduate of Valley Central and have been a teacher in the district for 17 years. After I graduated from Valley Central I moved to upstate New York to attend college at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Six years later, I returned to Montgomery to begin my teaching career in the very same building in which I had been a student.
After 17 years as a Social Studies teacher, cheerleading coach, student government advisor and Summer School Principal, I am very excited to being a new adventure as an Assistant Principal here at the Middle School. Together with our principal, Mr. Burns, and our other Assistant Principal, Mr. Balducci, I hope to continue the strong Valley Central traditions that make our district a special place for our students and families.
To the families of our Valley Central students, my goal is to make your student's years at our Middle School fun, educational and memorable. I have very special memories of this school from my own childhood. I am very proud to have a role in making your child's time here the very best it can be. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
I am looking forward to a terrific school year!
