HUDSON FALLS — The Hudson Falls Board of Education has selected an Oswego County school administrator as its next leader for the district.
Linda Goewey, assistant superintendent of instruction and personnel at the Central Square School District, is set to be appointed to the position at its Tuesday meeting at 7 p.m. The board offered Goewey a three-year agreement with an initial salary of $145,000. She is expected to begin her duties on July 1, according to a news release.
Goewey replaces Mark Doody, who is retiring after having led the district since August 2002.
Hudson Falls Board of Education President Robert Dingman said the district is looking forward to Goewey’s arrival.
“Though Mr. Doody’s experience will be difficult to replace, we are confident that Linda Goewey has the skill set to continue to move the district forward and will be an excellent fit for our community,” he said in a news release.
Goewey began her career as a fifth grade teacher in the Oswego City School District upon graduating from SUNY Oswego with a bachelor’s degree in education. While teaching full time, she pursued a master’s degree in literacy education degree at SUNY Oswego and became a literacy coach in the Oswego City School District.

Goewey then earned a certificate of advanced study in educational administration from SUNY Oswego and became principal of Brewerton Elementary School in the Central Square School District. In 2010, she took on her current position and completed the New York State Superintendent Development Program through SUNY Oswego.
Goewey said she loves her work and was looking for a superintendent position in a school district that was rural, yet close to urban.
“I look forward to this amazing opportunity. I have heard and experienced a very caring Board of Education and met an advisory group that has a true desire to move the district forward, and I am eager to be a part of that team,” she said in a news release.
Goewey is married with three sons in college. She is already planning her move from the Oswego area.
