Meet Your Principal
Hello and welcome to our website! I am so glad that you have decided to take the time to learn more about our school as a prospective parent or to keep up-dated as a current parent of St. Clement’s School.
We have rolling admissions for students in K through Grade 5. Our Early Childhood and Pre-K/Jr K Programs fill early; so, register as early as possible. You are welcome to come and visit us or have your child spend a day (or part of a day) with us to experience a day at our school. Call to schedule your visit today!
I thought you might like to know a little bit about me. I am a graduate of St. Leo’s School, Corona, NY, St. Agnes High School, College Point, NY, Manhattan College, Riverdale, NY (B.S.), and St. John’s University, Jamaica, NY (M.S.). I completed my educational administration coursework at The College of St. Rose. I am permanently certified in New York State as a School Administrator/Supervisor. I have been active in the field of education for the past 32 years. I taught 7th & 8th grade Math, Science & Religion for 8 years at St. Leo School (in Queens, NY). I also taught kindergarten right here at St. Clement’s School for 6 great years! After leaving St. Clement’s, I served as principal of Cohoes Catholic School for 4 years. It was a wonderful experience. I worked with a group of people who were willing to face many challenges and who believed in Catholic education. I learned a great deal and met many great people.
I next became principal of St. Mary’s Academy (in Hoosick Falls, NY) for 2 years. It, too, is a great school full of many wonderful families. It is a small school with a great spirit! However, when the opportunity to return to St. Clement’s School became available, I prayed that the Holy Spirit would somehow lead me home. So, here I am, ready to serve. I will give my all in serving God and my parish and school as “Faith & Family” become my motto and goal. I returned to St. Clement’s School as principal in July 2005.
Here are a few things about me that you may or may not know…
My husband and I enjoy music very much. He plays the guitar, banjo, and mandolin. I play the keyboard. We enjoy taking trips to New Hampshire and Cape Cod. Our son is an aviculturist at the Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City, Utah. He enjoys working with all different kinds of birds. He is a graduate of St. Clement’s School, Saratoga Central Catholic High School and Delaware Valley College where he earned his B.S. in Zoo Science.
Here are a few more tidbits about me…
- I collect angels (as any visit to my office will attest)!
- I love to do many different craft activities (as my many crates of craft supplies will verify).
- I enjoy attending sporting events (in which my nieces and nephews are playing)! Go SAINTS!
- I love Broadway musicals.

May God bless all of us as we work together for the benefit of all God’s children!
Mrs. Jane E. Kromm
