Mr. Michael Bateson was recently appointed as the new Pulaski High School Principal.  Bateson brings an impressive list of qualifications and experience to the position.  He earned his Associates in Arts Degree from Mohawk Valley Community College, his Bachelors Degree in Secondary English from SUNY Cortland, and a Masters in Education Degree from SUNY Oswego. In 2012, he also earned Certificates in School Building Leadership and School District Leadership from SUNY Oswego. Bateson has been with the Pulaski District for 20 years – 18 years as a classroom teacher and 2 as the Middle School Principal. He completed his administrative degree during the 2011 – 2012 school year, as a Co-Department Chair for the ELA department and as a High School Principal intern.

Mike has a long list of goals that he’s set for himself; some are academic oriented – such as learning the dynamics of state assessments in all content areas and how to best use the data, and learning the NYS regulations as they pertain to student assessments, graduation, and teacher evaluations so he can best help all vested people. He is also strongly focused on the things that create a positive and educationally strong school environment – supporting students & teachers daily; be sure everyone (students, parents, teachers, and staff) knows that they matter and are important; foster school pride, a sense of belonging, empowerment, freedom, and FUN in PACS daily; and for himself, be visible, be available, be caring, work hard, and do right by all.

Bateson summed up his feelings about his new position by saying “I’m thrilled, and excited. I love the challenge and I’m learning a lot. The people I work with are amazing and the support that all have given me is both sincerely appreciated and humbling. Pulaski has been a school community that has positively impacted my life. Thank you to the school district and the people with whom I work for granting me this opportunity.”
