At Western Middle: Healy named assistant principal

Superintendent of Schools William McKersie recently announced the appointment of Thomas Healy as the assistant principal of Western Middle School, effective July 15.

Mr. Healy was previously Assistant Dean of Student Life for Clark House and a social studies teacher at Greenwich High School.

“Mr. Healy’s teaching and administration experience, his knowledge of Greenwich, and his strong leadership skills make him the ideal choice for Western Middle School,” Dr. McKersie said. “I am especially pleased by his dedication to help Western’s staff, students and parents come together and push for outstanding results. Mr. Healy will be a great addition to Mr. Gordon Beinstein’s leadership team.”

Western Middle School Principal Gordon Beinstein said, “What really struck me about Mr. Healy was his focus on the needs of the children as the driving force in everything he does. This was further reinforced in conversations with his references, as each one spoke about his passion for the students and their individual needs. I am excited to have Mr. Healy on board. He will be a real asset to the Western community.”

Mr. Healy has been with the Greenwich Public Schools at Greenwich High School since 2000, first as an instructional aide, then as a Social Studies teacher, beginning in 2004.

In 2011, he was named Assistant Dean of Student Life for Clark House at GHS.

Throughout this time, Mr. Healy held additional leadership roles as House Senior Teacher and Stand By Me Coordinator.

He has been trained as a TEAM mentor, in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, and in data-based decision making at Harvard Graduate School of Education’s DataWise Conference.

As Assistant Dean, Mr. Healy has been part of the team implementing the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program at GHS, coordinating student and faculty focus groups and surveys to improve student connectedness.

Mr. Healy received a Bachelor of Science in anthropology from James Madison University, a Master of Arts in teaching, secondary education from Sacred Heart University and Administrators Certification through the University of Connecticut’s Neag School of Education Graduate Program.
