About Me

Mr. Richard McBane
I am a new library media specialist at Albany Avenue and Alleghany Avenue. Outside of school I enjoy exercising and leading a healthy, active lifestyle. I also enjoy sports, finance and writing in my free time. I, of course, love to read as well. There are so many to name, but one of my favorite books is “The Gold Coast” by Nelson DeMille.

Mrs. Dorothy Farias
Mrs. Farias holds a master’s degree as a school media specialist from LIU Post, formerly known as C.W. Post. She is presently enrolled in SUNY Old Westbury to obtain her second master’s degree as a reading specialist.
