Meet the Superintendent
Killingly Public Schools Superintendent, Mr. Robert Angeli
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am very excited to have been selected as superintendent of the Killingly Public Schools. I am thrilled and humbled by the trust the Board of Education has placed in me. The administrators, teachers and other staff members have been extremely welcoming and eager to help me get settled.
I have a little over 30 years in education. I started in education as a biology and chemistry teacher. While teaching in Granby, CT, I was also the athletic director. My pursuit of a career in administration included the positions of dean of students, assistant principal, principal, associate superintendent and superintendent. In addition to Granby, I have worked in Southington, Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, and Meriden. My most recent position was as superintendent of Lebanon Public Schools. I feel this diverse experience makes me a good fit for Killingly. For example, Lebanon shares a rich agricultural background and is home to a regional ASTE program and Meridan provided me the opportunity to work in an Alliance District, helping to meet the needs of all students.
I was drawn to Killingly by its commitment to educating its students in a system of continuous improvement. This commitment starts with providing safe and modern learning places for students and staff. Examples of this commitment are facilities projects, including the now 11-year-old KHS building, new turf multi-purpose field at KHS and the recent decision to pursue a renovate as new project for KMS. Academically, the district is impressive with the work being done with strategic planning, Portrait of the Graduate, and providing students a rigorous and challenging instructional program. Killingly is known for its strong sense of community and the partnerships that exist between Town and District agencies and departments.
Transitioning in the middle of a school year is not always optimal. I would like to thank Dr. Summa for facilitating my transition to Killingly through her communications and meetings with me, both prior to and after my arrival. I have been visiting the schools and meeting with the Board of Education, District staff and Town officials. I look forward to meeting with parents and having more interactions with our students.
Robert J. Angeli
