On July 1, his first day of work at Old Saybrook High School, new Associate Principal Joe Anastasio was already out and about, exploring the school building and stopping to meet staff members before returning to start setting up his new office.
Anastasio was appointed associate principal by the Board of Education last month. He takes over the job from Tara Winch, who started her new job last week as principal of Westbrook High School.
Anastasio's most recent post was as both English teacher leader and English teacher at Bacon Academy in Colchester. A 17-year veteran of the Bacon Academy faculty, he also taught language arts at Lebanon Middle School for four years and wrote a young adult book, Mist, that was one of four winners at the 2007 PEN New England competition.
