Daniel Katchihtes - Principal Dawnwood Middle School

  • Daniel Katchihtes

    I am honored and humbled to serve as the Principal of Dawnwood Middle School.  

    I have previously worked at Dawnwood as an Assistant Principal for 4 years and I can honestly say that there is no better school.  The students at Dawnwood are bright, kind, and hardworking.  The teachers and staff at Dawnwood are undoubtedly the best that I have had the pleasure to work with in my entire career. 

    I have worked as an assistant principal for the last eleven years at the high school and middle school levels in both Long Island and Florida.  I have a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Florida Atlantic University.  Prior to entering administration I taught High School Math in Florida.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from the State University of New York at Old Westbury.  

    It brings me great pleasure to see the students of Dawnwood grow both personally and academically.  I continue to look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with the Middle Country community and assist the students of Dawnwood to have a successful middle school experience.
