6th Grade

Welcome From Ms. Devine, Assistant Principal

Dear Sixth Grade Families and Students, 


I would like to welcome you to Irwin Altman Middle School 172 for the 2023-2024 academic year.  I look forward to meeting all of my new students and families this September, and starting our three year middle school journey together.  I recently completed my 2nd full year at Irwin Altman Middle School.  Before becoming an administrator, I was a teacher leader at I.S. 93 Ridgewood in District 24.  During my time at I.S. 93 I was a sixth grade science and math teacher.  Beyond my work at I.S. 93, I have also been a staff developer on a NYCDOE Title I STEM Grant, and a middle school science specialist at the Genovesi Environmental Study Center.


I am also the mother of three children.  My daughter is starting 9th grade, my son is starting sixth grade, and my youngest son is starting third grade.  Having a sixth grader at home means that I will be alongside you not only as an administrator, but as a middle school parent as well.  I, along with the sixth-grade team and support staff,  look forward to supporting all of you in whatever academic or social-emotional needs may arise this year.  Together we will make this an amazing school year!
