Daniel Salerno - Assistant Principal New Lane Elementary School

  • Daniel SalernoAs a child, Mr. Salerno grew up on the South Shore of Long Island.  He loved drawing, reading comic books, and shooting hoops.  As a student, Mr. Salerno’s teachers inspired him to be creative and compassionate.  As a blank canvas he was told, “You can be anything you want to be, just as long as you put your mind to it.” 

    Now, Mr. Salerno is thrilled to be the assistant principal of New Lane Elementary.  Mr. Salerno comes from the Floral Park-Bellerose School District with experience as an elementary school teacher and assistant principal.  He believes that a child’s mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.   

    Mr. Salerno earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut, his Master’s degree from Hofstra University, and his Certificate of Advanced Study in School Building Leadership from the College of St. Rose. Mr. Salerno is looking forward to providing the students with an environment that is physically, emotionally, and academically safe.
