At the October 15, 2012 School Committee meeting Superintendent of Everett Public Schools Frederick F. Foresteire announced that Erick Naumann, who has been serving as Acting Principal at the High School since September, has been named to replace Louis Baldi as Principal as of January 2012. Baldi will retire as Principal at the end of December 2012.
Naumann was previously the Principal of the Albert N. Parlin School in Everett for the last six years. He was responsible for 800 students and 60 faculty members in the Kindergarten through Grade Eight facility. Under his leadership, the Parlin School became the highest performing K-8 school in the public school district and also was recognized by the state’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for having produced exemplary student growth percentiles in Math and English.
Naumann taught advanced Biology and Anatomy for six years as a General Science teacher at Everett High School before being named the High School’s Science Department Chairman in 2003. He served in this position for three more years until he was appointed Principal of the Parlin School.
Naumann received his Bachelor of Science degree from Salem State College and his Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Emmanuel College in Boston. He graduated from American International College in 2009 with his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies and has certification as Superintendent/Assistant Superintendent for all grades, as well as Principal/Assistant Principal for PreKindergarten through Grade 12 levels.
“Mr. Naumann brings a high level of expertise in education to this position as well as a strong background in the Sciences. I am confident that he will continue in the fine tradition of Principal Baldi” Superintendent Foresteire said.
The Superintendent pointed out that Naumann had been “in training” in the High School under Principal Baldi’s leadership since the beginning of the school year. He assured students and their parents that the great characteristics that make Everett Public Schools unique still will be recognized and encouraged by Naumann.
“Mr. Naumann has been in the Everett Public School system for over fifteen years” the Superintendent said, “and he is aware of how much we value our schools in this community. He will be a great leader for students and professional staff in our High School.”
