The past week, the Wethersfield High School office staff welcomed a new assistant principal, Tyler Webb. Abby and I had the pleasure to meet with him and give the students a sneak peek of our newest addition.
As most of Webb’s family live close, he feels like he essentially knows the town, as he said “I still feel like I’m back home.”
In his first few days at WHS, he had already been surprised by some former connections he had with some of the staff. ELL teacher Mark Mirizzi went to the same high school as Mr. Webb and Mr. Rioux, our chorus teacher, was Webb’s elementary music teacher back in 1986.
This is Webb’s 20th year in education. Before becoming an assistant principal, he was a history teacher for thirteen years. As a child, he had an amazing 4th grade teacher Mr. G that inspired him to become a teacher, plus some good college professors that helped him towards the education field.
However, his love will always be for students, education, and for the history classroom. He said the following in regard to his love for all three, “Yeah, sometimes I invade history classes, more of an observer than an active participant.”
Mr. Webb wants to make more of a connection with the students beyond the classroom, plus helping teachers with problems they have.
As he begins here at WHS, he is excited to become more familiar with the staff and students of WHS and utilize experiences gained over the years from coaching, teaching, and being an assistant principal.
As we welcome a new member of our staff here, make sure to say hi and get to know Mr. Webb!
