A new principal has been appointed to Broadview Middle School in Danbury. Edie Thomas, the principal of Pembroke School will start in her new position July 1st. She will replace Edward Robbs, who is retiring after 18 years as principal at Broadview.
Thomas has been principal of Pembroke since 2006 and previously served as an assistant principal at Broadview. Thomas began her teaching career in Danbury in the Broadview Middle School music department.
Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella says Thomas's middle school teaching and a decade of helping young students build strong foundations in literacy and math, make her uniquely qualified to lead middle school students toward a successful high school experience.
Thomas earned a bachelor’s degree from Western Connecticut State University, a master’s degree in special education from the College of New Rochelle, and a sixth-year professional degree from Southern Connecticut State University. She is currently completing her doctorate in education, curriculum, teaching and leadership at Northeastern University.
