Dr. McCahill's Social Media
Dr. Kevin McCahill
Dr. McCahill was appointed as Superintendent starting July 2019. He holds a Doctoral degree in Education from Seton Hall University, a Master of Arts in Teaching Education from New Jersey City University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from The University of Scranton. Dr. McCahill is married to a teacher, Lucia, and has three sons, Johnny, Michael and Cole.
Dr. McCahill’s leadership style is anchored to two essential beliefs; the primary tenet is to “Seek first to understand and then to be understood” (Covey) and the second is “Leadership occurs in the context of relationships” (Fullan). Dr. McCahill says, “My brand of leadership is defined by a resolute commitment to mutual respect and collaboration, while maintaining the highest expectations for others and myself. Fostering cooperation and encouraging commitment through dialogue and the development of a common vision are priorities for me as a leader in the field of education. I truly believe that a strong Superintendent must have ‘walked a mile in the shoes’ of those whom they lead.”
As a proud and passionate educator for almost two decades, Dr. McCahill had the pleasure of serving as a Middle School and High School Math Teacher, High School Assistant Principal, Curriculum and Teaching Coach, Elementary Principal, Director of Teaching and Innovation and Assistant Superintendent of Schools. These experiences offered him the privilege of designing, implementing, and innovating programs and curricula that span the entire K-12 school continuum.
Dr. McCahill is grateful for this distinctive and unique career pathway. Serving the students, staff and community here in Nanuet as both a building level and district level leader over the past five years has provided him with the benefit of forging deep relationships with the Nanuet school community and he looks forward to continuing those partnerships as we push forward, evolve and innovate into the future!
