Tamar Walker Appointed Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services
On November 15, The Board of Education announced the appointment of Tamar Walker as the next Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services, replacing Dr. Nora Mazzone, who will retire at the end of this calendar year after 43 years with the Mamaroneck School District. Ms. Walker has a depth of experience serving in this role in the East Ramapo Central School District and as a special education classroom teacher.
“Mamaroneck School District has a rich and transformative history. The commitment to students and families, as outlined in the District goals alone, demonstrates the thoughtful nature and strategic planning of the District’s leadership,” Ms. Walker said. “I am excited by the opportunity to partake in the incredible work—contributing my skill set, experiences and unwavering dedication to student, staff and family progress.”
In Ramapo, Ms. Walker implemented a results-driven curriculum for special education students with an emphasis on high expectations for all learners, overseeing services and programs for 10,000 students and 30,000 non-public school students. Prior to coming to Ramapo, Ms. Walker was a special education classroom teacher in Brooklyn, Hartsdale, and in the Bronx.
Ms. Walker, who will join Mamaroneck Schools Jan. 1, 2023, just recently completed her doctorate from Fordham University. She already has developed a 100-day plan that she is eager to begin implementing. “I believe that by building on the great successes of the past and creating new, innovative and long-term strategic connections through the varying ‘arms’ of the Student Support Services Department, we can foster an even greater future for all students within the Mamaroneck School District,” she said.
