ROCKPORT, Maine — A longtime high school teacher has been nominated to be the next principal for the district’s elementary school.
Chris Walker-Spencer, a teacher of applied academics at Camden Hills Regional High School, has been nominated by the superintendent to be the next principal for Camden Rockport Elementary School. He would succeed Janet Anderson who is leaving after two years.
He has been with the district for 15 years, teaching courses such as business. He became a national board certified teacher in 2010.
The School Administration District 28 Board is scheduled to vote at its 7 p.m. Wednesday meeting on the recommended confirmation of Walker-Spencer.
The elementary school serves students in kindergarten through fourth grade from Camden and Rockport with an enrollment of 374 students.
The position pays $95,700 per year.
This will be the second new principal recently selected for the Camden-area schools. In May, the Five-Town Community School District Board confirmed the hiring of Robert Sampson, the headmaster of Waterville Valley Academy in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, as principal for Camden Hills Regional High School.
Sampson will succeed longtime principal Nick Ithomitis, who announced in November that he would be leaving at the end of the school year.
