Principal Karen Feuer

Karen Feuer joined PS 110 in 2009 with over 30 years of experience in education. She has held various positions that include administering the office of School Food Service at the Board of Jewish Education, teaching pre-school as well as elementary school in Manhattan and the South Bronx, supervising parent support in Districts 20, 21, and 31, and serving on the Community School Board in District Two — advocating for public schools and setting educational policy in the district.

Karen was born in the Bronx and attended public schools her whole life. She has a Bachelor of Science from New York University in Art Education; a Masters in Early Childhood and Elementary Education also from New York University and a Master in Supervision and Administration from Baruch College's Aspiring Leadership Program. She was an Assistant Principal for two years on Manhattan's Upper East Side at PS 183.

Karen raised her two children in Manhattan and they both attended public schools. She thinks public education in New York City is the best in the nation. "In a system as large as New York City's there will always be neighborhoods that have schools in need of improvement,” she says “but largely as a whole, New York City is a place of innovation, progressive thinking and accountability." She remains energetic and optimistic about improving outcomes for students at PS 110 and is committed to making sure that each student makes progress and meets high expectations.

Assistant Principal Alana Jermanok

Alana Jermanok has made PS 110 her work home since 2007. Before becoming Assistant Principal, she spent 7 years as a classroom teacher (4th - 6th grades), 1 year as a Math teacher (5th grade), and 3 years as a Literary Coach (3rd - 8th grades). Although she often can miss the energy, fun and responsibilities of being a classroom teacher, she loves the challenge and excitement of being a school administrator.

Never straying from New York, Alana received her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Union College, her Masters in Elementary Education from Teachers College at Columbia University and her Masters in Supervision and Administration from Baruch College's Aspiring Leadership Program.

While known to kindergarteners as "the lady in the lunchroom", she likes to think of herself as a liasion between the school vision and the student. She believes that every member of the PS 110 community is a learner, embarking on a journey towards self-improvement. As a Brooklyn native, Alana appreciates the diversity of 110 community — a wonderful blend of ethnicities, backgrounds, interests and personalities. She recognizes the mix as an opportunity to learn from one another and grow as individuals as well as a community.

Alana looks forward to each school year. She views September as not so much a new beginning but rather a renewal and a chance to progress from the previous year.
