New assistant principal appointed at North Mianus School
GREENWICH — A Stamford Public School teacher will take over as the assistant principal at North Mianus School effective Oct. 18, Greenwich school officials announced Thursday.
Sarah Obuchowski currently works at Newfield Elementary School in Stamford as a support teacher and oversees plans for students with learning disabilities. She will replace Kathleen Brunswick, who announced her departure from North Mianus to take a teaching position in the Darien Public Schools one week before school started. Brunswick remained at the building until Sept. 14.
Principal Angela Schmidt said members of the committee who interviewed Obuchowski were impressed with her knowledge of teaching practices and her ability to use data to make teaching personal.
“I am confident that Sarah’s strong interpersonal skills coupled with her desire to be an advocate for students will make her a welcome addition to the North Mianus School community,” Schmidt said.
Obuchowski began her education career in Darien Public Schools as an inclusion teacher, teaching in classrooms that integrated students with disabilities and other special needs with non-disabled students.
She moved to Stamford in 2017 and has been involved in both the school and district data teams, numerous student behavior-related committees and is a member of the science curriculum writing team. She has led professional development opportunities on the Next Generation Science Standards, Scientific Based Research Interventions and Balanced Literacy.
Obuchowski earned her bachelor’s degree in history and master’s degree in elementary teaching from Quinnipiac University. She recently completed the university’s Educational Leadership program, receiving the Excellence in Scholarship and Excellence in Leadership Awards.
