Dear Eastchester Families,
It is with great pride that I announce that Mr. Thomas Lehman will be joining the Eastchester staff on July 1, 2020 as the new K-12 Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Health.
Mr. Lehman earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and Secondary Education and his Master of Science degree in Physical Education, as well as earning his SBL/SDL certifications from Queens College. Since 2017, Mr. Lehman has been the Assistant Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Health in the Harrison Central School District. Additionally, Mr. Lehman previously served as a physical education teacher, varsity coach, Dean of Students and Assistant Principal at Long Island City High School in Queens from 2003-2017.
Based on the information compiled from our interview process, I believe that Mr. Lehman’s experience, interpersonal strengths, intellect, and passion make him an ideal choice for this position. His knowledge of best practices, desire to build a sense of community, and collaborative belief system will be a tremendous asset to the school district.
I hope you will all join me in welcoming Mr. Lehman when he begins on July 1.
