Nabinger moves into principal role at BGP
Missie Nabinger has been named principal of the Brownville-Glen Park Elementary School and started in her new role Monday.
Nabinger has worked in the General Brown Central School District since 2018 as director of Student Services. Superintendent Barbara Case expressed confidence that Nabinger would hit the ground running in her new role. “She has worked collaboratively with the other building leaders, so she is familiar with the responsibilities that come as principal,” Case said. “We are thrilled to have Missie move into this role in the district.”
Nabinger earned her bachelor’s degree from SUNY Oneonta and her master’s degree and Certificate of Advanced Study in Administration from SUNY Oswego.
Prior to General Brown, Nabinger served as assistant principal at Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Jr./Sr. High School for two years. Before that, she taught early childhood education in the CTE program at CitiBOCES.
As director of Student Services and CSE chairperson at General Brown CSD, Nabinger has worked to implement co-teaching to keep special education students in classrooms with their peers. She also has found ways to bring occupational and physical therapy into classrooms so that it benefits all students. “She has truly been a leader in our inclusion efforts,” Superintendent Case said.
“I’m a firm believer in educating the whole child and doing what’s best for kids, so that’s what my decision-making is based on,” said Nabinger, who is the mother of four children. “I’m really looking forward to working with students and staff and being an instructional leader.”
Nabinger replaces Joseph O’Donnell, who took a position at the Jr./Sr. high school. She will also continue in her Student Services director role until a replacement is found.
