Lincoln Orens welcomes new principal


The Lincoln Orens Middle School is welcoming Dr. Bruce Hoffman as its new principal, effective July 1. Hoffman is coming from an assistant principal role at Lindenhurst Middle School and replaces Vincent Randazzo, who is transitioning to assistant superintendent.

Hoffman is credited with initiating Lindenhurst Middle School’s science research program during his 11 years with the school, and will be involved with developing a science research program at Lincoln Orens as part of a $12.5 million bond approved this year for science lab improvements.

Hoffman earned a bachelor of science degree in Elementary Education from SUNY Old Westbury, a master of science degree in technology, education and multimedia from Long Island University C.W. Post and his Ed.D. of education in educational administration, leadership and technology from Dowling College.

“We know that his educational technology background and experience with science research programs will prove immensely helpful to us as we plan our new technology education classrooms and science labs,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino said.  “Dr. Hoffman is also keenly aware of youngsters’ developmental interests and needs. We look forward to the contributions he will bring to our district.”
