Western Middle School Assistant Principal Albert Sackey has been recognized for his leadership, having recently been named the 2014 CT Middle School Assistant Principal of the Year by the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

The award recognizes administrators that have “demonstrated excellent leadership commitment to staff and students, service to their communities, and contributions to the overall profession of educational leadership.”

Mr. Sackey was nominated for the award by one of the Western Middle School science teachers.

Superintendent of School, Dr. William S. McKersie said, “From the time we heard of this great honor for Al Sackey, we have all been thrilled for him.

Al Sackey is one of our prized administrators. His dedication to his students and strong spirit of collaboration among his colleagues have been an inspiration to us all.”

Western Middle School principal Gordon Beinstein said in his letter of recommendation, which was included in the nomination packet for Mr. Sackey, “[Mr. Sackey is] student centered, supportive of staff and understanding of the struggles of parenting this age group. I could not have asked for a better partner to help me to lead in my first year at Western Middle School…. While adept at all aspects of the job, Al is first, and foremost, an instructional leader… One of Mr. Sackey’s greatest strengths is his ability to relate and work with middle school students… He is an insightful listener and can determine the appropriate strategy for students that will allow them to succeed.”
