The two remaining candidates vying to be Los Alamos High School’s new principal had a big day Monday, as they made presentations to the student body at the school. They made a similar presentation to the general public in the school’s Speech Theatre later that evening.
Michael Johnson’s and Deborah Belew-Nyquist’s 45-minute presentations included a question and answer period.
Both candidates have extensive experience in education management and teaching. Johnson is presently an assistant principal at Los Alamos High School. Belew-Nyquist is presently working as an educational consultant for the International Education Director, Children of Nations in Port Orchard, Wash.
The candidates shared their vision for the school.
“My vision is to engage the students, as well as educate and inspire them,” Johnson said, adding that he would do that by providing students with “a good, hard-paced curriculum that’s relevant and has lots of options and extracurricular activities.” He also said he would make room to provide as much individualized instruction as possible.
Belew-Nyquist said that if she was hired for the job, her vision would be an inclusive one.
