Two vie for Mary Hogan School post

MIDDLEBURY — A Mary Hogan Elementary School hiring committee held on-site interviews on Monday, May 9, with two finalists for an assistant principal post that will soon be vacated by Michaela Wisell, who in July will become a co-principal of Middlebury Union Middle School.

The two finalists for the Mary Hogan job are Andy Johnson and Stephen McKinney

Johnson is currently a grades K-4 general music teacher at Milton Elementary School. His previous teaching experience has primarily been in the state of Wisconsin, except for a two-year stint (2009-2011) as a grades 6-8 orchestra teacher at Burlington, Vt.’s Hunt & Edmunds Middle School.

McKinney, of Mead, Wash., has thus far spent his teaching career halfway around the world in China.

He most recently served (until October of last year) as elementary director of instruction at QSI Chengdu International School in Chengdu, China. He joined that school as a fourth-grade teacher, from 2017 to 2021.

Prior to that, McKinney worked as a fourth- and sixth-grade teacher at QSI Kyiv International School in Chengdu from 2015-2017.

Plans call for the hiring committee to recommend either McKinney or Johnson as the preferred candidate, followed by a contract offer from Addison Central School District Superintendent Peter Burrows. The Independent will share news of the eventual hiring once it’s made public.
