Last updated on December 12th, 2018
Tammy Mangus has been a champion for the economic resurgence of Sullivan County since she made the area her home nearly a decade ago. Under her leadership as superintendent, the number of partnerships between local businesses and the district swelled, providing an increase of opportunities for students to gain new experiences and skills and experience a sense of connectedness and pride in their community. Some of these partnerships include expanding student interning opportunities at local businesses, establishing a local chapter of the NYS Mentoring Program and forming a “critical partners committee” – a strategic think tank whose members are comprised of local officials and business owners that are passionate about strengthening Sullivan County’s economic base, and creating the vision for a comprehensive, collaborative “Life-Ready” initiative.
Mangus has been helping students realize their potential since the early days of her educational career. She has worked in a diverse array of districts, serving students in urban, rural, and suburban settings as a teacher, professional developer, and principal before initially serving Monticello as the assistant superintendent and then becoming superintendent of schools. She received a Bachelor of Arts in English Adolescent Education from the State University of New York College at Fredonia, a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and educational leadership certification, both from Gannon University.
A staunch believer in the philosophy that education equals opportunity, she has been recognized for her success in improving outcomes for students as the recipient of Gannon University’s Graduate Studies Award for Excellence in Education as well as the DATAG Dr. Gerald E. DeMauro Award for Educational Excellence.
