Assistant principal picked to lead Pasco's Mittye P. Locke Elementary
Adam Wolin, assistant principal at Seven Springs Elementary School since 2006, is Pasco County superintendent Heather Fiorentino's pick to lead Mittye P. Locke Elementary School.
Wolin would replace Tammy Berryhill, who is transferring to the principal post at Schrader Elementary after longtime principal Mary Ellen Stelnicki retires. The moves take effect in early December.
Wolin, 32, has taught in Pasco County schools since 2001. Trained in special education, he figured he'd be a good fit for Mittye P. Locke, which has a large population of exceptional student education students. He said he looked forward to continuing the school's tradition of academic and behavior excellence with the staff and students there.
"I love working with children. I love the challenge of it. And I love seeing the successes that kids make," said Wolin, who had not applied to be a principal before this job opened. "I am very excited for the opportunity."
