Congratulations | Ms. DeAngelis
Principal of New Dorp Nominated for "Hometown Heroes Award"
Hurricane Sandy nearly destroyed the home of New Dorp High School Principal Deidre DeAngelis — and it utterly wrecked her Staten Island neighborhood.
But in the storm’s bleak aftermath, DeAngelis dedicated herself to her students and community, transforming the school into a relief center that aided thousands.
For her commitment to helping other New Yorkers in a time of crisis, veteran educator DeAngelis is nominated for a Hometown Heroes in Education award.
