New Vice Principal Named At Fuller Middle School

The new vice principal spent two years teaching in Nigeria and a couple of months teaching in Ecuador and is the former Maynard Teachers' Association president.

Mike Stevens will be the new vice principal at Fuller Middle School, announced Principal Sharon Seyller in a press release Tuesday, June 17.

Stevens has over 20 years of experience teaching engineering and technology to students at the middle and high school levels. Most of his experience has been in the Maynard Public Schools, where he worked with Seyller for three years.

“We are thrilled to have Mike join the Fuller Leadership Team; his experience as a trained engineer, as well as his teaching and leadership experiences will be a tremendous asset to our school. He has high expectations for students, and for himself. He is a very strong collaborator and I look forward to working with him as we continue to develop as a STEAM school," said Principal Seyller.

Stevens comes to Framingham with leadership experience as a technology coordinator and as the president of the Maynard Teachers' Association, said Seyller. 

Throughout the interview process, he shared with the search committee 
and Fuller staff, “Much as I have enjoyed the challenge as a classroom teacher, my personal journey has arrived at a junction where I am drawn to the role of school leadership.” 

Stevens is a "21st Century educator in every way. Mike has a global perspective having spent two years teaching in Nigeria, and he recently spent a few months teaching in Ecuador. The opportunity to come to Fuller Middle School was especially appealing to him, given its breadth of diversity," said Seyller.

He will start on July 1.

Thanks Framingham Patch for keeping us parents informed. I had heard from one of my daughter's teachers that a VP was named but no correspondence to parents until after the Patch published. Really appreciate your reporting on schools news.

I’m curious about this new VP hire (and yes, I also heard through friends that he was hired in April but parents did not find out until the Patch article made it public). What are his specific credentials for being a Vice Principal? Has he ever fulfilled this role? He’s listed on the Maynard school site as a Tech Ed teacher. The article mentions 2 years teaching in Nigeria, a couple months in Ecuador, and being the former president of the Maynard Teachers’ Association, yet Ms. Seyller states he’s a trained engineer and his “teaching and leadership experiences” will be an asset to the school, but nothing is mentioned of any specific VP experience. What are these “leadership experiences” that she references? He’s worked with Ms. Seyller for 3 years – does that alone qualify him for this job?
