Cruz-Davis is hired as Deerfield Valley Elementary principal

By CATE LECUYER Reformer Staff
WILMINGTON -- A new face will be leading Deerfield Valley Elementary School next year.
After reviewing 25 candidates, the Windham Southwest Supervisory Union appointed Mario Cruz-Davis as the new principal.
He will replace Kathy Larsen, who is retiring after holding the position for more than seven years.
Although Cruz-Davis will be new to the school, he is certainly not new to the experience required.
...
As a special education liaison at Mohawk Trail Regional High School in Buckland, Mass., Cruz-Davis handles the administrative work for students with disabilities, arranges for outside planning and maintains direct contact with faculty and staff, all duties similar to those of a principal.
Cruz-Davis has a masters degree in both special education and social work.He worked for five years in Massachusetts as a special education teacher, and for 10 years in New York as a special education teacher for bilingual students, the majority of which was at the elementary school level.
In New York, he was also a field coordinator for "STOP IT NOW!"In that state's Department of Corrections program for the treatment of Spanish-speaking sex offenders, he worked to prevent child sexual abuse.
Currently, he is enrolled in a leadership graduate program at Castleton State College, which he will complete in May 2006.
"I've covered the spectrum of all ages and elementary school is still my favorite," he said about his teaching experience.
As a two-year resident of Wilmington, Cruz-Davis decided to apply for the principal position because he wanted to be more active in the community.With both Twin Valley Middle School and Whitingham Elementary School also advertising principal positions, he had a list to choose from.
"I want a school in which I can have a relationship with parents, staff and students.That's the sort of relationship they have," Cruz-Davis said, referring to the Deerfield Valley Elementary School.
He added that he hopes to build upon the leadership demonstrated by Larsen, such as advancements in technology and the implementation of a new math program.
"My agenda will be to get to know the school better," he said.
To help with a smooth transition, Larsen volunteered to assist Cruz-Davis for his first year.
...
Cruz-Davis begins on July 1, and Larsen retires on Aug. 1, so there will be at least one month for the two to collaborate.
...
"I'm very excited and looking forward to it," Cruz-Davis said.
