    Sara Oshrin DMS Assistant Principal

    Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an assistant principal? Our new assistant principal, Ms. Oshrin is going to give us an inside scoop. Before coming to Dawnwood, Ms. Oshrin worked in a middle school in Queens. She first worked as a math teacher there but then became an assistant principal and has been an assistant principal for 8 years. She is brand new to Dawnwood this year. Her favorite part about being an assistant principal is that she's, "building relationships with kids and helping them navigate through their middle school years." Her least favorite part is "being the bad guy".

    On a personal note, Ms. Oshrin likes to dance and hang out with her family and friends. She has a daughter who is a cheerleader in 7th grade. When she was in school, she was a dancer on her school's dance team and her favorite subject in school was math. At home she has a mini goldendoodle named Fletcher and likes to celebrate other peoples birthdays.

    Ms Oshrin is "Happy to be here at Dawnwood, everyone is welcoming me and I am looking forward to a great school year". She left us with one piece of advice: "Be nice to other people!" Thank you and welcome to Dawnwood Ms. Oshrin.
