A Sayville resident, Flaumenhaft earned her bachelor’s degree in education from SUNY Cortland in 1991, a master’s degree in education from Boston University in 1995, a master’s degree in literacy from Dowling College in 2003, and an advanced graduate certificate in administration from Stony Brook University in 2010.
