A new assistant principal is joining the faculty at Huntington High School. The Huntington School Board has appointed Lisette Lors to serve on the administrative team.
Dr. Lors is coming to Huntington from the Bay Shore school district where she taught high school social studies for 14 years. She previously spent a year teaching social studies in New York City at the High School for Environmental Studies.
Huntington’s newest administrator obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in teaching social studies at New York University in 2003. She earned a Master of Science degree in foundations of education at Hofstra University in 2005 and a Doctorate of Education degree in educational administration and instructional leadership at St. John’s University in 2018.
“Dr. Lors comes to Huntington High School with a tremendous instructional background that will serve the Huntington community well,” Principal Brenden Cusack said. “Her experience, along with her passion for teaching and learning, her enthusiasm and her positive outlook are all attributes which made her the ideal candidate for the position. I am sure our students and staff will quickly find her to be an asset and a go-to member of the Huntington family. I am eager to begin our important work together.”
Dr. Lors was the principal of Eastern Suffolk BOCES’ regional summer school in 2015 and 2016 and was the assistant principal in 2013 and 2014. She obtained her state administrative certification through the College of St. Rose in 2009.
During her teaching career in Bay Shore, Dr. Lors developed a one semester elective course titled Latin America and the Caribbean: A Historical Society. She helped co-create and plan the high school’s Black History Month celebration that included keynote speakers and performing artists. She also implemented a Regents exam boot camp for students.
Dr. Lors has captured several teaching related awards during her career. She is also fluent in Spanish.
