Dr. Pregot has served as a secondary school administrator at the middle school and high school levels for 15 years and as a P-12 school superintendent for 15 years. Most of his administrative experiences have taken place in New York and Massachusetts with three years of service as an interim superintendent in New Hampshire. During his tenure as a practicing school leader, he has taught adjunct educational leadership courses at Boston College, Keene State, Franklin Pierce, Fitchburg State and Worcester State College. Prior to his appointment to the faculty at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus, he taught educational leadership courses for five years at Iona College in New Rochelle, N.Y.

As an active hands-on administrator, three of his major personal interests in school leadership consist of the supervision/leadership of high quality instruction, forming viable working partnerships with community organizations and finding creative ways to augment available educational resources in a town/city setting. His active participation in professional organizations such as ASCD and NYSSA allows him access to a wide range of topical school leadership issues at the state and national level. He has worked with the Metropolitan College Education Administration Program (MCEAP) in New York City, serving on the Program’s internship assessment committee.
