Daniel McCormick
Founding Principal of PS 527

Daniel McCormick was born and raised in Watertown, Connecticut. His mother was a high school Spanish teacher for many years and then an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut. The importance of education was instilled in him from a very young age, and it was no surprise when he pursued his Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. In 2003, Dan received his degree from Quinnipiac University and moved to New York City.

For nine years, Dan worked at the Talented and Gifted School for Young Scholars, a citywide gifted and talented school located in East Harlem. Dan was a 5th grade teacher and served as the Assistant Principal for five years. In that time, he worked with teachers to implement the Common Core State Standards and the Danielson Framework for Teaching. He worked closely with families and community members to support the school and its student body. The experience and knowledge he learned in those nine years helped guide him as he began the new and exciting venture of opening a brand new public elementary school. Dan opened the doors to PS 527 in September 2012 and welcomed the founding class of the new school.

Dan is proud of the successes and accomplishments of PS 527 in the first sixth years of its existence. He credits that success to the staff and families of the school, as well as community members who have helped along the way. PS 527 was proudly awarded the Blackboard Award for “New and Noteworthy Grade School” in November 2013. Dan looks forward to repeating this success in Year 7 and beyond!
