April 5, 2024

Baldwinsville Central School District is pleased to announce that Kathleen “Kate” Liddle was appointed by the Board of Education as the new principal of Reynolds Elementary School. Her official start date is July 1, 2024. Reynolds Principal Melissa Chiodo was appointed to the position of Director of Academic Services effective July 1st. 

Liddle is currently an administrator at East Syracuse Minoa Central High School. She has more than 20 years of experience in education. She has held roles in the Syracuse City School District and the Liverpool Central School District as an instructional coach, and an English and reading instructor. 

Liddle was born and raised in Central New York. After graduating from Jamesville DeWitt High School, she attended SUNY Oswego where she earned a degree in K-12 Education. 

“I was lucky enough to land a job right out of college, and thus began my career in education,” Liddle said. 

She earned her master’s degree in literacy from Syracuse University and returned to SUNY Oswego for her CAS in Educational Leadership.

“My many experiences throughout my career have led me to leadership, which has become my passion,” she said. “I truly enjoy working with students, teachers, and families. I am excited to share my love of learning at Reynolds Elementary within the Baldwinsville Central School District.”

Superintendent Dr. Joseph DeBarbieri said Liddle’s passion and enthusiasm for education makes her the perfect candidate to be Reynolds' next principal.

“She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the principal position and we’re excited to welcome her to our Hive,” Dr. DeBarbieri said.
