Welcome Dr. Brodie


The district welcomes Dr. Candice Brodie to her new role as principal of Lindenhurst High School. Dr. Brodie comes to the district by way of Baldwin High School, where she was employed first as the Supervisor of Secondary Social Studies and went on to hold the position of Assistant Principal for Instruction.

“As Assistant Principal of Instruction at Baldwin High School, I have come to know the school community. Working collaboratively with the students, teachers and the rest of the administrative team gave me the ability to not only put into practice my values and vision, but to hone and craft them to match the needs of the school and seek to find ways to always be improving and moving forward.” Dr. Brodie’s career in education began in 1993 when she spent five years teaching U.S. History to seventh and eighth grade students and Global History I to ninth grade students at John Ericsson Middle School in Brooklyn. From there she spent nearly 20 years within the North Shore School District, where she continued to teach social studies at the secondary level before taking on the additional role as Coordinator for the North Shore High School’s International Baccalaureate Program.

“My goal for our students at Lindenhurst High School is for them to find what they love to do, where they find success and what motivates them,” Brodie said.  “I can’t wait to get to know them and be a part of their discovery."

A lover of learning, Dr. Brodie has earned a doctoral degree in administration and instructional leadership from St. John’s University and post-master’s advanced certificates in school building leadership and school district leadership from The College of Saint Rose, as well as a Master of Arts degree in secondary social studies education from Queens College. At University at Albany, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and rhetoric with a minor in history.

The district extends its congratulations and is confident that Dr. Candice Brodie will excel in this leadership position as she has in others.
