Anthony Showah

Student Support Specialist, CSE Chairperson
Dr. Showah is originally from Georgia, but has lived in the Northeast (Boston, New York City, now Connecticut) for more than 10 years. He spent the first years of his post graduate career as an artist, but moved up from Atlanta to join the New York City Teaching Fellows, so he could follow his dream of social justice. Now with two kids, he's outgrown his small NYC apartment and enjoys the country life! Dr. Showah reports that it's been great to join the Haldane team, where he works with dedicated and thoughtful professionals who envision success for all our students.

Mission of the Haldane Central School District Pupil Personnel Services

Inclusion, social-emotional development, and innovation are the critical components of Pupil Personnel Services at Haldane. Inclusion is a philosophy of education that fosters a sense of community and empathy in our students. Building on that, we encourage our students to understand their own learning process and how that can be used to collaborate and communicate with others. Finally, innovation in how we deliver instruction and special services for the varied needs of all learners helps us prepare our students for lifelong success.

Haldane aims to instruct all students in the manner befitting them, and our continuum of special services reflects that objective. We have high expectations for each student, and we carefully develop programs and services to target skills and achieve progress. Professional teaching and learning spurs ongoing program development and reflection of program efficacy. We are dedicated to the needs of our students and families, so please feel free to call, email, or come see us.
