Outgoing superintendent recognized at School Committee

Jun 19, 2022

Outgoing Wareham Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood was recognized with flowers — and a pickleball bag — during a School Committee meeting on June 16.

Committee members thanked Shaver-Hood for her service to the school and congratulated her on her retirement, which begins next month. She has served as superintendent since 2013.

Dr. Matthew D’Andrea was picked as the next superintendent in April. He previously served as superintendent on Martha’s Vineyard.

Committee members spoke highly of Shaver-Hood and the changes she wrought during her nearly 10 years as superintendent.

“Everything’s been updated and fixed,” chair Kevin Brogioli said, “and that’s due to your diligence. And in terms of academics, curriculum and instruction, I think we’re in a better place for our students.”

The outgoing superintendent thanked the committee for their kind words and gifts.

“Find me on the pickleball court,” Shaver-Hood said.
