Greenwich Public Schools chooses adult education coordinator

September 12, 2017

GREENWICH — Braulio Santiago, a 40 year Connecticut educator, will be Greenwich Public School’s adult and continuing education coordinator, effective Wednesday.

“I am looking forward to working with the community to expand and offer adult education classes that meet their interests and needs,” said Santiago. “Learning is a lifelong adventure.”

Santiago began his career as a Spanish teacher with Berlin Public Schools before serving as an elementary school principal within New Britain Public Schools for 28 years. He was recognized as the Connecticut Multicultural Educator of the Year, Principal of the Year for the New Britain School District, Administrator of the Year for the New Britain School District and Mentor of the Year for the New Britain School District.

“The interview committee was unanimous in its recommendation for Mr. Santiago to lead our continuing education program,” said Deputy Superintendent Ann Carabillo. “He will bring a new perspective based on his extensive experience with teaching and learning.”

Santiago will develop, promote, implement, monitor and maintain fiscal accountability for all mandated and enrichment instructional programs offered by the Adult and Continuing Education Programs on behalf of the Greenwich community. He was selected after a comprehensive search and appointment process, which included widespread recruitment efforts, multiple interviews and extensive reference and background checks, the district said.

“We are excited by the vivacity Braulio will bring to the Adult Education and Continuing Education programs,” said Carabillo.
