The district has hired Justin Uliano as the new curriculum associate for ELA, reading and library in grades 6-12, replacing Michelle Kwon.

He comes to Deer Park from the Amityville School District, where he served as ELA department chairperson for the last year. He previously worked for three years as English, ELA and library department chair for Sewanhaka High School, and for 16 years as an English teacher in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District.

Uliano, who resides in Sunnyside, Queens, earned a double bachelor’s degree in English and anthropology from Stony Brook University, a master’s of science in education degree from Queens College, school building and district leader certificates from the College of Saint Rose, and an advanced certificate in teaching literacy from birth to grade 6 from Mercy College.

“I am really pleased to be able to make a home in such a terrific school community as Deer Park, and I look forward to supporting this talented teaching staff as we all continue to grow and adapt to the ever-changing needs of our kids and our schools,” Uliano said.
