Central Valley welcomes Fisher Elementary School’s new principal Michele Pilla. Mrs. Pilla begins her first day on Monday, Nov. 2.

Fisher Elementary Principal Michele Pilla grew up in Utica and graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1995. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Education from Niagara University in 1999 and went on to SUNY Cortland where she earned a Master of Science in Education in 2002. In 2013, she graduated from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) with a certificate of advanced study in School Administration.

Michele  spent the last 16 years as a dedicated educator in the Utica City School District. She enjoys the challenges of education, working with teachers, parents, and students and the opportunities to make education happen for each student. With 16 years of hands on teaching experience, Michele has a strong commitment to the development of student learning and knowledge of working with a diverse student population.

She is eager to embark on this new journey with the Central Valley School District and Fisher Elementary. She is excited to bring her skills as an educational leader to Fisher and to work with the parents as a partner in education to ensure their children’s academic success.

Michele is looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with the students, and working with the professional staff, parents, and community members of Fisher Elementary. She is energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of all children at Fisher Elementary.

Her main goal is to ensure that every student at Fisher Elementary is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment to help each student achieve their personal best.
