Dear Bulldog community:


It is my great pleasure to welcome Mr. Héctor Huertas as Cloonan’s newest Assistant Principal. Mr. Huertas comes to us with a wealth of experience as an educator in diverse, urban settings.  He was a teacher in Miami and Norwalk, as well as an administrator in Norwalk and Hartford, most recently.  Mr. Huertas holds a Bachelor’s degree in Art and Architecture, a Master’s degree in Teacher Education and is completing a Doctorate in Instructional Leadership. He has been an educator for 18 years.


Mr. Huertas commented, "I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the Cloonan community as we continue cultivating our kids' minds, hearts, and bodies as they deserve nothing less. I am looking forward to bearing witness to the socioemotional and academic growth of our Bulldogs; this will be accomplished by our committed staff and dedicated parents."


I believe Mr. Huertas's professional background and experience will be an asset to our school community. His experience combined with a powerful personal story brings an empowering perspective. We are excited to have him join our team and expand our capacity to serve the needs of all our students.


On a personal note, I wish to also take this opportunity to thank Mr. Alexander Hanna for his many years of dedicated service to our students, staff and families. He has made a lasting impact on our community and we wish him well as he starts his new chapter at Rogers International Baccalaureate Magnet School.


Please enjoy the rest of your summer. We look forward to greeting you at the end of next month to start a new and exciting year at Cloonan Middle School.


Best regards,


David Tate, Principal
