Mrs. Christina Miga is the West Irondequoit Central School District’s new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. She was appointed at Thursday night’s Board of Education meeting and will begin in her new role on March 1, 2021. Miga has served the District for the past seven years as its Director of Instruction for kindergarten through sixth grade (K-6).

"I am extremely excited to welcome Mrs. Christina Miga as our new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction,” said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Aaron Johnson. “Mrs. Miga is a proven and well-respected leader who has the skill to take our K-12 curriculum to the next level. Chrissy stands firm in making sure that every student can see themselves reflected in their learning and that we share this journey with students, families and staff. All means all in West Irondequoit and Mrs. Miga has the passion and vision to ensure every student has the programs and supports to realize their highest potential."

The District is creating a transition plan to fill Mrs. Miga’s current role with the expectation to hire a permanent successor by July 1, 2021. In her new position as ASI, she will lead the K-12 Curriculum and Instruction program. The role was created following the departure a year ago of WICSD’s Deputy Superintendent, who oversaw Human Resources as well as Curriculum and Instruction. The process included a thorough review by outside consultants of West Irondequoit’s organizational structure for Curriculum and Instruction.

A Fairport native, Mrs. Miga has worked in education for 17 years. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from Canisius College in Buffalo with certification in Childhood Education (grades 1-6) and Extension in English (7-9). She went on to earn Master of Science degrees from Nazareth College (2009) in Literacy and St. John Fisher College (2013) in Educational Leadership. After teaching for one year in Florida, she joined West Irondequoit in 2005 as a part-time middle school science teacher, then taught third grade at Southlawn School (2006-11). She was the Director of the District’s Teaching Learning Center for two-plus years and then its K-6 English Language Arts Supervisor before becoming the K-6 Director of Instruction in 2014.

"I am incredibly honored and excited to serve West Irondequoit as Assistant Superintendent for Instruction,” Miga said. “For more than 15 years, I've had the privilege to work alongside our outstanding staff, parents and community members who are all committed to student success. As I enter this new position, I look forward to creating alignment, clarity and empowerment through curriculum and instruction together."

Miga and her husband, Scott, reside in Fairport and have two young sons.
