Weston public schools: Some retirements, some resignations

Weston Public SchoolsA number of certified staff and teaching professionals will not be returning to Weston public schools in the fall. Some staff members have retired, others have resigned, while other positions were cut from the work force.

There are also three staff members who are returning after a leave of absence.

The highest ranking departure is Jason Bluestein, former assistant principal of the Weston Intermediate School (WIS), who left at the end of the school year to become the principal at Burr Elementary School in Fairfield.

Mr. Bluestein’s departure led to two staff reassignments. Doreen O’Leary, Hurlbutt Elementary School assistant principal, has been reassigned as assistant principal at the intermediate school.

To cover for Ms. O’Leary, Kimberly Kus, Hurlbutt’s curriculum instructional leader for physical education and health and its physical education and health teacher, was appointed as Hurlbutt’s assistant principal for the 2012-13 year.

Ms. Kus will serve 0.6 FTE (full-time equivalent) as assistant principal, and 0.4 FTE as curriculum instructional leader for physical education and health.

Lewis Brey, director of human resources, said in light of declining enrollment, the school board will review the administrative needs at Hurlbutt for the 2013-14 school year. The schools have contracted for a detailed study — due in September — to help plan for the next school year’s use of facilities and staffing.


There were 10 teachers who resigned this past year from the Weston school system.

At Hurlbutt Elementary School, four teachers left: Kristen Nielsen, kindergarten; Michaela Durand and Jen Barone, second grade; and Jenna Connors, math intervention teacher.

Gone from Weston Intermediate School is Kristin O’Connor, music teacher.

Two teachers left Weston Middle School, Julie Foss, Spanish; and Darla Crocker, math.

Two teachers left Weston High School, Audrey Jensen, French; and Lucille Baker, business education.

Also, Kathleen Askintowicz, an SRBI (scientific research-based intervention) specialist, has left.


There were five teachers who retired: Barbara Nardella, third grade, Weston Intermediate School; Criste Muscott, special education, Weston Middle School; and from Weston High School: Kim Russo, physics; Dewey Strohmeyer, math; and Lawrence Shackner, library media specialist.

 Reduction in force

There were two positions eliminated from the school workforce: An intermediate school computer teacher position held by Diana Garra, and a middle school technology education position, held by Alison Stephens.


Returning to the schools after a leave of absence are: Meg Aoah, Hurlbutt guidance counselor; middle school science teacher, Melanie Walsh; and high school biology teacher, Amy Capalbo.

Susan Marks was reappointed as the school district’s medical examiner.
