BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – At a special board meeting Wednesday, the Boardman School Board unanimously approved hiring Mike Zoccali as the new principal at Stadium Drive Elementary.
Zoccali comes to Boardman with more than 15 years of experience as a teacher and administrator. He graduated from Youngstown State University in 2000 and received his Master’s in Administration degree from Westminster College.
He began his career in education as a long-term substitute at Boardman-Glenwood and was then hired by the Austintown Local Schools, where he worked as a teacher from 2001 to 2013. During the last three years, Zoccali has been an assistant principal at Austintown Middle and Austintown Intermediate schools.
“I am excited about the opportunity to finish my career, where it all began back in 2000 and help build upon the ‘Tradition of Excellence’ that is the Boardman Local Schools,” he said.
