Czebatol appointed Merton Williams Middle School principal

Tracie Czebatol, who has served as Village Elementary School principal for the past six years, will be replacing Tim Dobbertin as principal of Merton Williams Middle School. Dobbertin was recently appointed as the Monroe 2 – Orleans BOCES assistant superintendent for instructional programs and will begin his new position on Aug. 24.

Prior to working in Hilton, Czebatol served as a principal at York Elementary School in Livingston County from 2005-2009. She also taught in a variety of classrooms at Fyle Elementary School in the Rush-Henrietta Central School District from 1998-2005, including general education classrooms, inclusive classrooms and a multiage classroom. In addition, Czebatol taught leadership and education courses at her alma mater, The College at Brockport, for several years.

At Brockport, Czebatol earned bachelor’s degree in English literature, a master’s degree in curriculum, and a certificate of advanced study in educational leadership. She is certified in N-6 general education, 7-12 English, school building leadership and school district leadership.

“Working in Hilton Central School District has been a professional dream come true,” said Czebatol.  “Hilton is an incredible educational institution that puts the students at the heart of every decision.”

Czebatol said that working at Village Elementary School has provided her with many opportunities to grow and learn alongside wonderful students and staff members. “I decided to move to Merton Williams because I want to expand my repertoire as an educator by working with different grade levels while learning alongside the outstanding educators that make Merton Williams a high quality school,” she said. “Extending my professional work to the next grade levels beyond elementary school seems to be a natural next step.”

Czebatol is a resident of Hamlin and has three children in the Hilton School District, William, age 14; Grace, age 12; and Caroline, age 7.
