Brandon Bobart Named Hall Fletcher's New Assistant Principal
Brandon Bobart, who currently serves as the Ira B. Jones Elementary School Title I Interventionist, has been named the Assistant Principal of Hall Fletcher Elementary School.
Effective March 5th, Bobart will begin his tenure with Hall Fletcher Elementary School where he is “looking to continue the good things that are going on as well as bring a few new ideas” to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math themed elementary school.
Bobart is in his ninth year of education within a Title I setting.
Having previously served as an Assistant Principal at North Charleston Elementary School as well as an Instructional Coordinator at Northwoods Middle School, he not only has experience managing a large staff but also in implementing literacy circles that have been proven to increase the overall reading abilities for all students.
While assistant principal, he also successfully moved North Charleston from an “at-risk” rating to “meeting growth.”
Bobart began his teaching career in 2009 as an 8th Grade English Language Arts educator at Baptist Hill Middle/High School before moving to Haut Gap Middle School in 2011.
During his time at Haut Gap, Bobart used STEM curriculum to create a Saturday School enrichment program focused on outdoor gardening and sustainability.
Bobart earned a bachelor’s degree in English Teaching and Education from Eastern Kentucky University as well as his master’s degree in School Leadership and Supervision from the University of Cincinnati.
Bobart will be replacing Jan Thomas as she retires. Thomas served as Hall Fletcher Elementary School’s assistant principal for three and a half year.
When asked what he’s most looking forward to about his new position, Bobart immediately responded “meeting the Hall Fletcher community.”
“I’ve heard such great things about Mrs. Sellinger and her staff’s ability to improve overall student success,” he said. “I look forward to learning more and helping support their ability to aide every child in not just meeting but exceeding their potential.”
When Bobart is not at school, he enjoys spending time with his family.
He’s married to Loring Bobart, a 4th Grade teacher at Ira B. Jones Elementary School.
