Stewart  Bogdanoff

Stewart Bogdanoff believes that the challenge of education
is to provide programs and guidance that will enable children to
discover how to learn. He feels that the challenge of the future is to
create an environment where learning is a lifelong pursuit for everyone.
He also believes that the school environment should blend to create an
atmosphere in which each child can be absorbed and elated in the
discovery of himself, his world, and its infinite joys.

Stewart asks us to consider how exciting and meaningful the lives of
our children will be if we utilize our great wealth, resources, and
creative abilities to give them the opportunity of learning how to
learn. Stewart started his teaching career in 1965 with the Lakeland
Central School District in Yorktown Heights, New York.

Upon retirement in 1996, he had raised over $250,000 for charities by
running sports oriented fundraisers at Thomas Jefferson Elementary
School participated in by thousands of students over his 31-year career.

Stewart received his Bachelor of Science Degree from The King’s
College, his Master’s and Professional Degree from New York University,
and his certification as a school administrator from SUNY New Paltz. He
has also done graduate work at Harvard University and Long Island
University.
