2022 Assistant Principals’ Conference

October 24 @ 9:00 am - October 25 @ 12:00 pm

“Guiding Schools in Turbulent Times”

October 23-25, 2022

Andrew Marotta is an energetic and enthusiastic leader who has put his positive imprint on his beloved Port Jervis High School, in Port Jervis, NY.  With the release of his first book, “The Principal:  Surviving and Thriving”, Andrew is expanding his impact on the educational leadership community.  
In his personal life, Andrew is a loving husband to his wife, Jennifer, and supportive father to their three young children.  In his professional life, Andrew has been at Port Jervis High School for fifteen years, serving as Assistant Principal for seven years and Principal for the past eight.  He has led the transformation of Port Jervis High School, helping to raise the graduation rate from a low 60% to mid and upper 80%. 
There has been a positive mindset change among staff and students directly related to Mr. Marotta’s leadership in and around the school.  In addition to academic achievement, the school’s climate and culture has evolved for the better.  From smoky bathrooms and empty, downtrodden flowerbeds to clean, smoke-free halls and bathrooms and an abundance of beauty in and around the school, Mr. Marotta has been the catalyst for significant change at PJHS. 
Husband, Father, Principal, former Division One College Basketball Official, Adjunct Leadership Professor, Professional Speaker & Developer, Andrew Marotta balances his busy lifestyle and now shares with you the tips, tricks, procedures, and methods he uses to make it work. Take one or all of the tips in his book and make them your own.  One day at a time and one wisdom point at time, you’ll be better tomorrow than you are today.
 Now he wants to bring his game plan to you and your school.  Are you ready?
