Clinton Hill Middle School Faculty & Staff

Jaclyn DeLuca


Macalester College, B.A., Pace University, M.S.

Jaclyn (Jackie) DeLuca is the Founding Principal of Brooklyn Prospect Clinton Hill Middle School. She joined Brooklyn Prospect Charter School in 2012 as a middle school reading intervention specialist. During her tenure at Brooklyn Prospect, she has demonstrated tremendous leadership in pioneering key strategic initiatives to improve the quality of reading and writing instruction across our middle and high schools. A seasoned educator and experienced administrator, Jackie understands the transformational impact that developing rich reading lives can have on young minds.

Jackie received her B.A. in psychology from Macalester College and her M.A. from Pace University, where she majored in middle school education and specialized in working with students with disabilities. Jackie’s deep understanding of the importance of student literacy was ignited early in her career when she served as a Teach for America Corps member at Mott Hall III Academy in the Bronx, and later as a founding special education teacher and special education coordinator at Achievement First East New York Middle School in Brooklyn. Prior to joining Brooklyn Prospect, Jackie was also awarded a Michael Jordan Foundation grant, which she used to plan and orchestrate the full development of a middle school library, converted from a vacant classroom.

Since the opening of Clinton Hill Middle School in 2016, the school’s students and teachers have benefitted immensely from Jackie’s knowledge, teaching experience, and determination to foster a warm and inviting educational environment.
