Adofo Muhammad, Principal

Cluny Lavache, Asst. Principal

My name is Thierno Malal Diallo; and I was born in the republic of Guinea, Conakry.

I earned a Bachelors Degree in mineral chemistry, at the University Gamal Abdel Nasser of Conakry; a masters of business administration (MBA) degree, in finance and investment, at Baruch College, in New York City; a masters of science in education at pace university, in New York City.

At Bedford academy I believe that it is my responsibility to prepare our young scholars for the challenges that lie ahead as they continue their journey to acquiring the knowledge to become responsible citizens. I teach Calculus, Physics, and Algebra II & Trigonometry. My philosophy of teaching is that until the learner can take ownership of the knowledge acquired, he or she did not learn. when teaching, I always make sure that my scholars develop the self confidence needed to solve problems using relevant information and concepts, without seeking any outside validation in the process. My focus is, and  has always been, on students' developing enduring understanding of the concepts; and using these concepts to solve problem according to their understanding and creativity.
