Trust and respect are earned. Barbara Berkowitz certainly deserved both. At the request of his fellow administrators, Berkowitz served for fifteen years as chairman of the Board of Education. Apparently his colleagues share my feelings.
Berkowitz understands and accepts the challenges and the importance of sustaining quality education at a time of dwindling resources. It celebrates and promotes a culture of social and informational diversity that encourages change, growth and innovation.
Her vast experience in the areas of finance, policy and strategic planning and the continuity it provides have allowed Great Neck Schools to thrive, especially during this extraordinary year of the pandemic.
Berkowitz continues to work hard to build and maintain positive and supportive relationships at Great Neck and at all levels of county and state government.
She is dedicated to the mission, vision and values supported by all residents of Great Neck.
In the future, I am convinced that Mrs Berkowitz will continue to put children first. She will ensure that students at Great Neck have all the resources and support they need to become productive members of society. The Great Neck School District will continue to be recognized and rated as an A + Model School System.
