The week of April 3-7 was Assistant Principal's Week. I would like to take this time to shine a spotlight on Mrs. Singleton, Assistant Principal at Lyman Memorial High School. Sam has an undergraduate degree from UCONN in American Studies. She also possesses a Master's in Education from the University of New Haven as well as a Master's in Special Education from Southern Connecticut State University. She obtained her Intermediate Administrator Certification after completing coursework at the University of New England.
Sam taught Global Studies for 6 years at Lyman. She then served as a part-time Assistant Principal while continuing to teach for two years. Now she is in her second year as full-time Assistant Principal.
Sam loves that she knows every person in the building. She enjoys building relationships with staff and students and it is these connections that mean the most to her in work. She is proud of the focus the district has made on supporting student and staff mental health. She looks forward to connecting students and families to the supports they need.
She is looking forward to once again celebrating "life events" with students as they get ready for prom, awards ceremonies and graduation. These are special memory making moments that she feels lucky to be a part of.
