Welcome to GNPS Community Education!

  • Jennifer Andersen

    Ms. Jennifer Andersen became the Director of Community Education in August 2023. She is a familiar face in the Great Neck Public Schools, having spent her entire 27-year teaching and administrative career at North Middle School. Ms. Andersen will be leaving her current position as North Middle Assistant Principal to serve as Director of Community Education. 

    Ms. Andersen has served as an assistant principal since 2015. Her administrative responsibilities included developing the school’s master schedule, assisting with department budgets, coordinating special programs, supervising staff, and supporting the entire North Middle community. Ms. Andersen is confident that her experiences at North Middle will provide a strong foundation for her new role as the Director of Community Education. 

    Prior to becoming an assistant principal, Ms. Andersen taught English at North Middle from 1996–2015. For the latter eight years of her time as a classroom teacher, Ms. Andersen also served as the school’s dean of students.
