Fairfield's Loss Is South Wayne's Gain
Kelly Soderlund had a nice front page story today about last year's ISTEP improvement at Fairfield elementary and how South Wayne is facing a similar task. Now of course I'm biased because my wife works at Fairfield and I see firsthand how much hard work she and the other teachers there put into their job. The story focuses on South Wayne's new principal, Tim Bobay, who was the assistant principal at Fairfield last year. I've had the opportunity to meet Tim and it comes as no surprise to me that he was sought after to turn around South Wayne. Tim was very respected at Fairfield and will be missed - I fully expect to see South Wayne's ISTEP scores to start improving under his leadership.
