SALEM - Timothy O'Grady ..., 8 Oct 2009 [cached]
SALEM - Timothy O'Grady Sheehan is the new business manager for the Salem Public Schools.
Sheehan's career experience has included military service, work in the private sector, teaching and, most recently, three years as director of business and finance for the Groton-Dunstable School District.
"I am delighted to be here," Sheehan said to the School Committee members after they unanimously voted to hire him this week.
Sheehan had been the lone finalist for the business manager job in the Peabody Schools, but the Peabody School Committee voted at a Sept. 22 meeting to postpone the decision to hire a business manager until there were more candidates.
Two days later, the search committee in Salem picked Sheehan as a finalist and invited him for an interview with the School Committee, according to School Committee member Jim Fleming.
Sheehan started on Tuesday.
"Salem is considerably larger (than Groton-Dunstable) so this is a step forward for me," Sheehan said.
Twenty-two people applied for the Salem business manager position, and Sheehan was among two finalists, according to Fleming, who was on the search committee.
Sheehan replaces John Danizio, who left last month after nearly two years in the post to take a business manager job with the Winchester Public Schools.
"The city is very attractive," Sheehan said of Salem.
"There is stability of leadership in the office of the superintendent, which is important," he added.
Sheehan served on active duty in the US Navy for six years and was in the Coast Guard Reserve for 20 years, retiring with the rank of commander. He worked in the private sector for Raytheon and other companies before earning his master's degree in education in 1995. He taught for one year in Methuen and 10 years in Lowell, mostly in bilingual education.
Sheehan lives in Lowell. He and his wife, who is a Beverly native, have two daughters.

GROTON -- Crunching numbers is Timothy Sheehan's specialty, not to mention speaking Spanish, teaching, computer analysis and business applications.
When Sheehan originally applied for the position, school officials were immediately impressed with his credentials.But having never gone through the difficult task of balancing a school budget, kept him from getting hired into a contracted position.
Sheehan has worn many other hats over the years that Genovese anticipates will bring something unique to the table.
Sheehan, 57, has worked in Lowell Public Schools for 10 years, teaching Spanish as well as fourth grade.Prior to a career in education, he worked at Raytheon for 10 years as a procurement specialist and business and computer analyst.Sheehan has a bachelor's degree in political science from the College of the Holy Cross, a master's in business administration from Babson College and a master's in education from UMass Lowell.He served six years active duty in the Navy, 20 years in the Coast Guard and is also a certified business administrator.
During his first day on the job, Sheehan spent Thursday taking a tour of the schools and getting briefed on the tasks that lie before him as the new school year quickly approaches.
"It's a learning situation, but I'm looking forward to every minute of it," Sheehan said."I'm sure I'll miss teaching but I knew eventually I'd want to work in education in some other capacity."
Sheehan said his business background seemed a perfect fit to manage school finances -- a vital role in keeping valuable programs and resources available to young learners.
While the position is temporary, the interim director of business and finance can apply for full-time contract position when the school district sends out another call for the job in the spring.
But for now, Sheehan said he's eager to soak up as much information as he can about the school district.
"In a way, I'm still in the classroom," he said, "and enjoying the opportunity to learn."

Superintendent C. Milton Burnett had ..., 24 Sept 2009 [cached]
Superintendent C. Milton Burnett had recommended Timothy O'Grady Sheehan, who recently finished a three-year contract as Groton-Dunstable's director of finance and business, to fill the finance post vacated by Michael Musto.
Sheehan had emerged from a field of 22 applicants and then a group of six interviewed by a screening committee created to vet candidates, Burnett said.
During an hourlong interview, Sheehan told the committee his foray from the private sector to the classroom came while working at Raytheon. Every three weeks, he read to a bilingual class in Lowell and was inspired to become a teacher.
"I feel the school business manager (job) is the perfect job for me," he told committee members.
Sheehan only had three years' experience as a business manager and in a much smaller district, he said.
McGeney and Moutsoulas didn't rule out Sheehan but said they needed more information.
Committee member Brandi Carpenter expressed concern about the number of jobs that Sheehan had held.

"We used revenue data from FY07 to put this proposal together since we have no official numbers from the state, and we simply don't know what to expect," said Timothy Sheehan, interim director of business and finance for the Groton-Dunstable Regional School District.
