New MBA Principal

Last evening, the BOE unanimously appointed Mrs. Margot Martello as the new MBA Principal (effective July 1).  Mrs. Martello is coming to us from Tolland, where she served as the assistant principal at the high school for the past nine years.  While at Tolland High School, she was instrumental in the day to day operations of the school, developed mastery-based learning principles, led the NEASC accreditation team, and created an environment of collaboration and collegiality with all constituents.  

Her colleagues in Tolland describe Mrs. Martello as an effective leader with high integrity, a caring personality, and a strong work ethic.  She has made a significant impact on creating a positive culture at Tolland High School.

During the interview process, it became clear that her experience, student-centered philosophy, and ability to create a positive teaching and learning climate made her the ideal candidate for MBA.

I am very excited to welcome Mrs. Martello as a member of our Somers Public Schools community.
