The Board of Trustees of Christ the King High School on Friday announced that Geri Martinez has been appointed principal of the Middle Village school.
According to CK, Martinez began her career at Stella Maris High School as a guidance counselor, and later served as assistant principal. Martinez then became principal of Stella Maris, a role she held for 14 years. Upon the closing of the Rockaway Park school, she served as assistant principal of Bishop Kearney High School in Brooklyn, and most currently, interim principal of BKHS.
“After a thorough review of highly qualified candidates, we at Christ the King are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Geri Martinez as principal,” said Board Chairman Serphin Maltese. “Her experience and enthusiasm as an educator for over 30 years will be a wonderful fit with the hard work and efforts put in by the faculty and administration to make Christ the King a pillar of academic excellence.”
Martinez holds a degree in school counseling and State certification in administration and supervision. She has also been teaching at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn for more than 16 years, and serves on a host of educational and Catholic-affiliated organizations.
“I have been blessed in my life to always be able to do what I love to do, working with faculty and students, meeting the challenges of each day and searching for the next step in the continuum of professional and personal growth for all,” Martinez said. “I now look forward to my new role as principal of Christ the King High School.”
