Larry Taub grew up in Brooklyn and Queens and is proud of being an alumnus of JHS 47. He went on to get a high school education at William Cullen Bryant High School. He went to college at Hofstra University where he majored in History. He received my Master’s degree at NYU in order to become a teacher of the deaf. He taught Social Studies at the New York School for the Deaf and eventually went on to become an administrator there. About 12 years ago, He went back to school to earn his doctorate in Educational Administration at Columbia University. Now he has nearly 30 years experience as a professional educator. He has never left a job undone, regardless of the challenges or how time consuming they were. He is presently working, as the Superintendent, at the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf in Maine.

They say that there usually is a woman behind every successful man. This is true for him. He is married to Diane, an accomplished artist and they have a lovely daughter, Sarah who is a seventh grader at Louis M. Klein Middle School.
