Director of Student Life
Dr. Ann Iparraguirre has been involved with education her entire professional career. She has taught every age level student from pre-school through post graduate college work. She and her husband, Pablo, have four daughters and they currently serve as District Pastor for Lovin' Life Ministry in three states. Dr. Ann was the founder of a pre-school program while her own children were young.
She completed her doctorate in Educational Leadership at the University of Bridgeport and was co-founder and founding principal of a private elementary school in Bridgeport.
She then worked with the New York City Department of Education taking progressively more responsibility in the District, beginning as an early childhood teacher, becoming assistant Principal in a Middle School in the South Bronx and finally working as a District level administrator for 25 high schools in four different boroughs before retiring to accept her current position.
Dr. Ann's motto is "the leader of heart is the leader of authority." This is never more important than in the role of founding administrator of Student Services for Barrytown College on the Hudson. Expect the programs and policies developed to reflect the philosophy that strength comes from being a life-long learner and that each have a responsibility to contribute back to society in his/her chosen field of expertise.
