Message from Principal Sabina Dinardo

Dear Carroll Hill Students and Families,

I hope your summer has started out well. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Sabina Dinardo, and I am honored to serve each of you as the new Carroll Hill Principal. I am looking forward to meeting you in the near future.

Born and raised in Troy, I have pride in our Troy community and am committed to serving our students and families. I proudly attended the Troy City Schools, graduating from Troy High School in 1996.

For the past twenty three years, I served the Troy School District in various capacities. I began my career as a teacher’s aide, while attending college in the evening. I was an elementary teacher and an Instructional Coach, which led me to a district position as the K-12 ELA Curriculum Leader. It was at that time I made the decision to return to school to pursue my School Building Leadership and School District Leadership certification. I spent the past three and a half years at Troy Middle School as the Academic Dean and as Assistant Principal.

My mission is to provide every student with a sound educational experience where they can learn and grow, by working collectively with our faculty, staff, and families to ensure everyone has the tools and resources needed to be successful. As the Principal of CHS, I am dedicated to our continued work of building a positive climate and culture within our school community. Establishing an environment built on trust, respect, open communication and reflection is the foundation that I believe will lead our school to the pathway of its mission and vision for all students.

It is important to me to get to know each student and their family. Beginning this September, we will host Carroll Hill Coffee Chats on a monthly basis. We will also have our first community event of the year here at school in mid August. More information will be shared in the coming weeks. We hope you will be able to join us.

I am excited to work together and am eager to meet all of you! If you are at Carroll Hill or simply in the neighborhood, please stop in and say hello. Have a great summer!
