Dr. Frank Sheboy, Goshen alumnus, named assistant superintendent for
curriculum, instruction, personnel and technology
8, 2013 - On January 7, Dr. Frank Sheboy began his first day as
assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction, personnel and
technology at the Goshen Central School District. Sheboy, a graduate of
the Goshen High School Class of 1985, claims that his new position,
“feels like being home.”
“I had wonderful teachers and experiences while a
student at Goshen, and I’m excited about the opportunity to contribute
to the district,” he said.
Sheboy comes to Goshen from the Cornwall Central
School District, where he held the position of high school principal for
the past six and-a-half years. He had previously served as the school’s
assistant principal for four years, and began his career as a social
studies teacher at the Washingtonville Central School District, a
position he held for 12 years.
“I love to teach and even as an administrator, still
consider myself a teacher,” he said.
However, Sheboy did not originally consider education
as a career. In fact, when he first began contemplating his future while
a student at the Goshen High School, the thought of becoming an educator
never crossed his mind.
“My plan was to go to business school, study law and
become a corporate attorney,” he admitted.
But life had different plans for Sheboy. After
experiencing a significant life change as an undergrad at SUNY Albany,
Sheboy discovered his true calling – working with and supporting
children. He decided to switch gears and become an educator, and after
23 years in the field, has returned home to Goshen, his alma mater.
“I believe that my skills and talents are a great fit
for the district,” he said. “I always envisioned myself working here.”
But becoming an administrator wasn’t a cut and dry
decision for Sheboy, either. According to Sheboy, the idea was first
introduced to him during his eighth or ninth year of teaching at
Washingtonville, when the superintendent at the time urged him to
consider becoming an administrator; something he had never considered.
“At the time, he saw something in me that I didn’t
yet see in myself,” said Sheboy.
As the years went on, Sheboy was continually tapped
for his expertise and asked to lead certain initiatives as a veteran
teacher. It was then that he began to realize his passion for
educational leadership and decided to pursue the necessary credentials
to further his career as an administrator.
“I love working with staff to
foster ideas that will enhance our children’s
educational experience, and ultimately do
what’s best for our kids,” he said. “I look forward to working with the
superintendent, Board of Education and the faculty
and staff to bring the best educational program possible to the
Goshen Central School District.”
“After all, when the pencil hits the paper – that’s
where the magic happens.”
