New RMMS Principal a Familiar Face

Starting this upcoming 2015-2016 school year, the principal at RMMS will be a familiar face in the district. Elizabeth Walsh-Bulger, who came to North Babylon in 2008 and served as assistant principal at the high school for seven years, is set to lead its middle school counterpart.

“I’m thrilled to become part of the tradition of excellence of the RMMS family and plan to share its pride for many years to come,” Ms. Walsh-Bulger said. “The middle school years are critical in a child’s academic, social, emotional and physical development through the transition from elementary school to secondary school. I want parents to know that the RMMS staff will shepherd their children through these years with resolve, sensitivity, strength and compassion to ensure that they all meet their potential for growth and achievement.”

Ms. Walsh-Bulger began her career in education teaching English language arts and ESL at what is now the W.H. Maxwell Career and Technical Education High School in East New York, Brooklyn. She then served as the coordinator of academic intervention services in the Academic Learning Center at the West Islip High School. While in West Islip, she also served as a Dean of Discipline, and implemented and coordinated their Alternative Education program. Ms. Walsh-Bulger said she is very proud of the fact that the programs she helped develop in West Islip still exist today, and continue to support all students.

When she came to North Babylon in 2008, Ms. Walsh-Bulger said she arrived convinced that she had found her true home.

“I’m delighted that I will continue to serve the community I love in a new capacity,” she said. “I can’t wait until the school year starts so I can truly begin my journey with my fellow RMMS Bulldogs.”
