Noelle Short ’05 has been appointed as acting superintendent and principal of the Long Lake Central School District. The former superintendent Donald Carlisle will take a temporary medical leave of absence and work with Short as a consultant to the district.
Short has taught grades 7-12 in English language arts for the past six years, serving as a lead teacher. She took on many leadership roles during this time, such as her membership on the school’s technology committee and learning plan committee, which have been an integral part of the 2016-17 academic initiatives, according to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. Additionally, she oversaw building safety, operations and discipline when the superintendent was unavailable.
“I am honored to take on the position of acting principal/superintendent for the 2016-17 school year,” she stated. “Long Lake Central School is a one-of-a-kind place with exceptional students, staff, and faculty where people take care of one another like they would their own family.”
At Hamilton, Short majored in government and was a member of women’s soccer, Hamilton Environmental Action Group (HEAG) and Biomatters of Hamilton College. After graduating, she earned her Master of Arts degree in English from Middlebury College in 2010.
