I wanted to share some exciting news and ask you to join with me in congratulating Mr. Joseph LeRoy who was unanimously selected on Monday night by the East Hartford Board of Education as the new principal of Mayberry Elementary School. As you know, Joe has served in an interim role for the past three months and it is with great excitement from our faculty, students and community that he is here to stay!
In East Hartford, we deeply believe in hiring, developing and promoting talent within our system. One of our major talent strategies is to “grow our own” and I cannot think of a better example of someone who has taken full advantage of the learning opportunities we provide throughout the district. Joe is an experienced, talented and dedicated educator who has faithfully served EHPS since 2004 as a Physical Education and Health Teacher, Athletic Coordinator, K-12 Supervisor, Assistant Principal, Interim Principal and now Principal. He has volunteered at every level on many committees in his ever present quest for improvement and growth. At every turn and with every opportunity Joe has aced the test, demonstrated incredible commitment and lived out the values and core beliefs we expect from our leaders here in East Hartford. In the short duration Joe has been at Mayberry it has been a pleasure to watch our school community embrace his contagious enthusiasm, relentless preparation, fierce attention to detail and passion for student success. We are so proud of the transformational process we are seeing occur at Mayberry and have incredible confidence in Joe’s continued leadership of this capable team.
We are thrilled to have Joe in this new role and look forward to great things ahead. Please join with me in congratulating him on his appointment.
With Great East Hartford Pride!
