New Assistant Superintendent!

In December, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Rosemary Tralli will retire. Dr. Tralli has served Glastonbury Public Schools for eleven and a half years, eight and a half as assistant superintendent. It can be difficult to replace such a talented leader. However, Glastonbury Public Schools attracted a large and highly qualified pool of candidates interested in the position.

We will welcome Mrs. Cheri Burke as the new Assistant Superintendent on December 16. Mrs. Burke has worked for the past five years as Director of Student Learning at Regional School District #10. Mrs. Burke has also worked as an elementary and middle school teacher, literacy coach, International Baccalaureate Coordinator, adjunct professor at Saint Joseph University, and elementary school Principal in East Granby.

We are delighted to have found an educator with such a strong passion for education and record of achievement.
