BHS’s Daniel Murphy in New Role as Assistant Principal

When students enter Briarcliff High School this September, they’ll notice many administrative changes. Former Principal James Kaishian has been appointed the district’s new superintendent, former Assistant Principal Debora French has been named principal, and former dean of students Daniel Murphy has been appointed the school’s new assistant principal. 

Mr. Murphy has been a member of the BHS community for eight years. He began his tenure at the high school as a math teacher and for the last two years has been employed as the campus dean. His previous experience in the education field included teaching math in East Fishkill, N.Y., and in Virginia, where he also served as a golf and soccer coach.

Mr. Murphy has called many locations home, having been raised in Missouri, Michigan, California and Virginia. He received both his undergraduate degree in speech/communications and his master’s in education administration from Virginia’s Old Dominion University. Mr. Murphy now resides in Clinton Corners, N.Y. with his wife Kimberly, also a teacher, and his three children. An avid sports fan, his many other interests include golf, tinkering with trucks and yard work.

Mr. Murphy’s new position at BHS carries many challenges but anticipates a seamless transition given his knowledge of the building, the faculty and the present student body and looks forward to becoming a more integral part of shaping the tone and tenor of the building.

“It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve in such a solid school district,” said Mr. Murphy. “I have big shoes to fill and I hope to carry on the tradition started by my predecessor and new principal, Debora French.”
