North Mianus Assistant Principal leaves for Darien school
GREENWICH — With school less than one week away, North Mianus School Assistant Principal Kathleen Brunswick announced she took a special education teaching position at Tokeneke Elementary School in Darien after two years at the school.
Brunswick’s departure marks an increasing cohorot of educators leaving the district. This spring and summer, three elementary school assistant principals swapped places and one left the district. Overall, seven administrators have left and 11 have transferred within the district.
“My time at North Mianus and with the Greenwich Public Schools has been filled with wonderful memories that I will take with me forever,” Brunswick said in a statement. “The staff at NMS and those colleagues with whom I have worked across the District are truly one in a million and some of the best educators I have ever worked with. They each bring a strength and skill set to this District which benefits the students of the Greenwich Public Schools.”
The search for an Assistant Principal for North Mianus School will begin immediately.
North Mianus School parents and staff found her caring and dedicated, Principal Angela Schmidt said in a statement.
She introduced North Mianus Cares, which gives students the chance to help in their community with efforts that included making lunch for the homeless and visiting local nursing homes.
“Kat is a consummate professional who always put the needs of children first,” Schmidt said. “Kat helped students live the Vision of the Graduate and develop the skills needed to become citizens of the world. She will be greatly missed by our whole school community.”
Brunswick has a strong background and experience in meeting the needs of all learners, Director of Communications for Greenwich Public Schools Kim Eves said in a statement.
Brunswick has been a special education teacher since 2004. She began teaching in Greenwich in 2007 as a special education teacher for Parkway School before moving to Glenville School in 2011.
She also served as a site administrator for the GPS Summer School Program for summers 2013 to 2016.
