Welcome to the Iroquois Middle School website! My name is Vicki Wyld and I am proud to be the principal at Iroquois. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with the students, staff, and parents in our community. My goal is to ensure the success of every child while creating an environment for life-long learning.

I began my career in the City School District of Albany, teaching seventh and eighth grade English Language Arts. I served as the ELA Administrator at Doyle Middle School in Troy, before joining Niskayuna Schools for the 2007-08 school year. I obtained my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University at Albany and a CAS in Educational Leadership from the College of St. Rose.

Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments or ideas. Iroquois needs and values your input. It is by working together that we will make a difference in the lives of our children.

Michael Kovall began as Iroquois Middle School Assistant Principal in October 2019. He brought nearly a decade of middle school experience to Niskayuna, having previously served as a math teacher in both the Albany and East Greenbush school districts. He was also an administrative intern at East Greenbush’s Goff Middle School, where he coordinated the master building schedule, supervised interview teams, analyzed learning standards and was active in character education and No Place for Hate.

Kovall is a graduate of the State University of New York College at Cortland and has a master’s in instructional technology. He also has experience as a land surveyor and lacrosse coach.

He said it is an honor and a privilege to join Iroquois.  “I am truly appreciative of the opportunity to work with the families and staff at Iroquois Middle School. I’m excited to be part of the Niskayuna community and to help our students have the best middle school experience possible,” Kovall said.
