Good Morning, I am happy to announce that Talib Sadiq has accepted my offer to fill the ARHS Assistant Principal position. The superintendent has also confirmed Talib’s appointment.
To the position, Talib brings a long commitment to the students of Amherst and the Region. He has held many roles – in and out of school – that reflect his commitment to the community and demonstrate his long-experience as an educator. His seven years as the Residence Director of the Amherst ABC House and the last 11 at ARMS as a guidance counselor, school climate coordinator, and, most recently, as the Dean of Students reflect his abiding interest in the development of healthy, well-prepared youth. That he will be with us strengthens us. Our multi-step interview process was designed to provide the search committee with a variety of perspectives on the candidates and their capacities. That the candidates were well-vetted enabled the committee to arrive at a recommendation about which they felt confident. The committee believes that, in Talib, they have found someone who will provide a steady hand day to day and make important contributions to the overall leadership of our school. This summer, Talib will begin at ARHS by working with Ericka and Andrea as they build next year’s master schedule. He will start full-time in the middle of August. Please join me in welcoming Talib to ARHS. I’m happy he will be with us.
Mark Jackson Principal
