Principal Joshua Whitham.

Joshua Whitham started his new job as Sleepy Hollow Middle School principal in early July, learning the lay of the land and the vibe of the village.

A native of San Diego, where his educational career began as a sixth-grade teacher for gifted and talented students, Whitham has Lego blocks in his office to represent a hunger for learning.

“You can create anything. That’s why I love education, school,” Whitham said. “It (SH Middle School) is definitely a place that’s open and inviting. I am eager to enhance experiences for our students. They are the priority.”

Meanwhile, at neighboring Dows Lane Elementary School in the Irvington School District, John Wells was appointed August 22 by the Board of Education as interim assistant principal. The district is searching for a permanent assistant principal and hopes to make a selection in October.

“John is a warm and dedicated educator who will greatly support the learning of our early elementary students,” said Dows Lane Principal Deborah Mariniello. “I look forward to him joining the Dows Lane community as we welcome all students, staff and parents to the 2017-18 school year.”
