An Independently Organized TED Event

Randee Bonagura

In 1992, Randee graduated from Farmingdale High School, and now sits in the same auditorium where she performed and enjoys her daughters' concerts and theater performances as she raises Dalers of her own. Randee has been a teacher and administrator in several Long Island school districts over the past 23 years. Her classroom experience includes teaching second and third graders, instructing supportive math classes and courses for gifted and talented students at the middle school level, as well as providing high school reading instruction. She attended Hofstra University for her undergraduate education, received her administrative degree through the College of New Rochelle with a specialization in professional development, and returned to Hofstra to earn her doctorate in Literacy Studies, where she was an adjunct professor. Randee served as a reading department supervisor and assistant principal before becoming an elementary school principal, a role she has enjoyed for the past 8 years. In her first book, Embrace Makerspace: A Pocket Guide for Elementary School Administrators, Randee shares her passion for creativity, tinkering and enrichment for all.

Randee enjoys spending time with her daughters, Allison and Zoe, and bonus daughters Jocelyn and Alyssa, and traveling with her husband, Dave. She plays clarinet with the Seaford Community Band and the Farmingdale Village Pops, and has had articles about parenting published on Grown and Flown.
