Dear Marblehead Public Schools staff, students, families and community,

Thank you for your participation in our selection process for the Marblehead High School Principal. We were fortunate to have the contributions of a strong and broad Search Committee and an outpouring of input and participation from parents, community members, students and faculty during our 'meet the finalist' forums. I am excited to announce Daniel Bauer as the principal of Marblehead High School pending successful contract negotiations. Daniel is an outstanding and seasoned leader and I am pleased and confident to welcome him as a part of the leadership of our district.

Daniel completed undergraduate work at the University of Pennsylvania earning a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. He went on to earn dual master's degrees in Education from Tufts University and Endicott College with concentrations in Teaching and Education Organizational Management. Dan has been a part of the Beverly High School administrative team since 2006 as the Assistant Principal. Prior to High School Administrative roles, Dan has taught high school social studies and history, led and mentored many high school enrichment and extra-curricular groups, and formerly worked in college level athletic leadership roles.

Dan has supervised and evaluated teachers, served on NEASC Committees, led curriculum, assessment and instructional initiatives, founded the 'Freshman Academy' mentoring program, counseled at risk students and improved student outcomes across all High School student cohorts and demographics. He has been referenced as a 'student advocate'. His many positive references also note his collaborative and faculty/staff team-building successes. As a school and community leader, Dan has been seen on the stage in the school musical, on the athletic fields, and in the community cheering on the pursuits of all student groups.

The strong instructional, programmatic, and communicative team building successes that Dan has achieved during his long-term tenure at Beverly High School ensure him as an excellent fit for the needs of the Marblehead High School. I am excited to begin working with Dan and I hope you will join me in welcoming him to the Marblehead Public Schools.
