Former Minot Forest Elementary School Assistant Principal Denise Tobin has left her position for a new job in Plymouth.

Tobin is now principal at the Plymouth Early Childhood Center, a preschool located in the Plymouth Community Intermediate School. Her first day on the job in Plymouth was Jan. 29, according to published media reports.

Tobin had 26 years of experience in Wareham Public Schools. She started as a special education teacher before transitioning into an administrator role five years ago as the early childhood coordinator. For the past three and a half years, she served as assistant principal.

Tobin is originally from Hanover and currently lives in Plymouth with her husband.

Tobin is the second Wareham administrator to publicly accept a position in another district. In early February, Wareham Middle School Principal Dr. Peter Steedman accepted a position on Martha’s Vineyard as director of the island’s public charter school. He will start his new job after the school year ends.

...26 years of experience in Wareham, leaving for a better job in another town.  What a shame!


Dr. Shaver-Hood, what are you going to do to stop the exodus?


Students and staff are leaving as if the place was on fire!


It's really sad because things were starting to look better.  Hope we don't lose the positive forward momentum.

WBTS that's almost funny as she keeps trying to bolt too. What makes them think parents will bring students back into the district if the administrators don't want to stay? Who can blame them when they are desperately underfunded, but everyone wants "results." Fund the schools!

If retaining quality teachers and administrators is a issue for you it’s time to make a change. Two seats on the school Committee are up for grabs. Time to bring in fresh new ideas from new members.
