And Then There Was One ...

Finalists for the principal position at Fuller Middle School are now down to just one candidate as the other finalist has accepted a position in Newton.

Parents are invited tonight (April 24) to meet the lone finalist for the Fuller Middle School Principal position at 7 in the school's library.

The lone finalist to replace former Fuller Middle Principal Juan Rodriguez, is Sharon Seyller.

Seyller is in her third year as an Assistant Principal at the Fowler Middle School in Maynard. She also served three years as a Vice Principal/Interim Principal at Scituate Middle School. Seyller has more than 15 years of guidance counselor experience in New Hampshire and Massachusetts public schools.

She spent the day in Framingham Tuesday, said Human Resources Director Paula Ceglowski.

It is unknown if Dr. Scott will name Seyller as the new principal, or if he will decide to hold a second principal search for Fuller Middle. Since, the search began and now is down to just one finalist, Cameron Middle School Principal Judith Kelley announced she would be leaving.

The search is down to one finalist as just before April vacation began, Newton Superintendent David Fleishman announced he has appointed John Harutunian as the new principal at Oak Hill Middle School, reported our sister site Newton Patch.

Harutunian, who is currently assistant principal at Robert Adams Middle School in Holliston, was the other finalist for the Fuller Middle School position.

In a letter sent to Oak Hill parents and staff, the Newton Superintendent of Schools said Harutunian impressed the district with his passion for middle school education as well as his commitment to the academic and emotional well-being of students. 

"John is a leader who truly values school and community engagement. You can expect him to be in the classrooms at Oak Hill on a daily basis interacting with both students and faculty," Fleishman said in the letter. "John understands the importance of building a strong relationship with parents and looks forward to working with the entire community."

Harutunian has served at his current position in Holliston for five years. Prior to that, he worked as an ESL (English as a second language) teacher and department head at the Framingham Public Schools. He also spent several years teaching in Ecuador.
