PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barbara Malkas, deputy superintendent of the Pittsfield Public Schools, was awarded the degree of doctorate in educational leadership from the Sage Colleges of Albany at a commencement ceremony held on Saturday, May 12, at the RPI Field House in Troy, N.Y.

Malkas will be leaving her current position to become the superintendent of the Webster Public Schools in Central Massachusetts, effective July 1, 2012.

She began her educational career as a science teacher in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1982 after receiving her bachelor's in chemistry from St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn. She then received her master's in education from St. John's University in Queens, N.Y., in 1986.

Upon relocating to the Berkshires, Malkas has served public education in a variety of positions, ranging from chairman of Taconic High School's science department (1998-2002) to coaching the implementation of an integrated curriculum of technology and engineering with science in the Northern Berkshire Vocational School District (2002-2004). In 2004, she became assistant principal of C.H. McCann Technical School in North Adams.

In 2006, Dr. Malkas returned to Pittsfield to become the coordinator of mathematics, science, health and physical education for the Pittsfield Public Schools.
