DEXTER — After spending nearly 30 years in education in SAD 46, Janice Breton is leaving her post as principal of the Dexter Middle and Garland Schools for an administrative position in the Westbrook school system.
"This is an opportunity I couldn't pass up," Breton said Friday. Her resignation was presented this week to the board of directors.
Breton said her career in SAD 46 has been a good one and she will miss the personal and professional relationships she has made over the years. Breton began work in the district immediately after college and served in a variety of roles over the years, from teacher to administrator. Her last 11 years in the district were as principal.
Her replacement will find a "wonderful and caring bunch of teachers" and students who are well-behaved, Breton said. "I just see it as a plum of a school if I were looking for a position as principal."
At Westbrook, Breton will serve as director of curriculum, instruction and assessment for a K-12 school system of about 3,000 students. She will be responsible for curriculum development to ensure the schools are in compliance with the expectations of the Maine Learning Results, grant writing and federal programs.
Breton said the new position will be a challenging one. She and her husband plan to relocate to the Westbrook area in the future.
