Western Middle School Assistant Principal Albert Sackey has been named the 2014 Connecticut Middle School Assistant Principal of the Year by the Connecticut Association of Schools and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

His dedication to his students and strong spirit of collaboration among his colleagues have been an inspiration to us all.”

A Western Middle School Science teacher nominated Sackey for the award.

Western Middle School Principal, Gordon Beinstein said in his letter of recommendation, which was included in the nomination packet for Sackey:

“[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.”

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

An educator for thirteen years, Sackey started at Western as an assistant principal in 2008.

Sackey received a Bachelor of Science degree in Justice and Policy Studies from Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C. in 1998; a Master of Science degree in Special Education from Manhattan College in Bronx, N.Y. 2003; and a Master of Science degree in School Administration and Supervision from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. in 2004.
