Joseph Licato’s career began as a secondary English teacher in 1997. In the fall of 2000, Mr. Licato continued his career at Ronkonkoma Middle School as an eighth grade English teacher. After four years of teaching at the middle school, Mr. Licato accepted the position of English Department Chairman. He held the position successfully for three years. Next, Mr. Licato secured the title of secondary assistant principal at Connetquot High School. For three years he enjoyed working with the twelfth grade students who held Mr. Licato in high regard. Finally, Mr. Licato has “come home” to Ronkonkoma Middle and is serving as assistant principal. His philosophy is that all students are able to succeed when afforded the opportunity of growth and learning in a safe, nurturing and respectful environment.
Mr. Licato is now serving as Acting Principal in the absence of Chuck Morea.
