Wenzel is good choice for superintendent

I have taught in Fayette County for about 14 years. I have had the privilege of teaching under the leadership of Lyn Wenzel at two different schools.

While I taught at Flat Rock Middle in the beginning years of my career, Lyn was one of the assistant principals. Lyn expected the best out of all teachers and I admired her high standards. I learned a lot under Lyn’s leadership during my first few years of teaching.

After leaving Flat Rock I took a year off to be a stay-at-home mom. I went back to work when a position came available at Booth where Lyn Wenzel was now principal.

Lyn was a great principal at Booth. You knew where you stood with her. If you did your job well, you had her full support. I also worked with the Science Olympiad team under the leadership of Mary Wilde and can testify that Lyn was also very supportive of the coaches and students that worked with the team (as is our current administration). Coaching Science Olympiad is hard work and having the support of the administration is extremely important.

Lyn supports good instruction and knows what teachers need to be successful teachers. To quote Lyn from a recent article in The Citizen, “A successful school system is focused on the future and providing a world-class education for all students.” As a teacher and a mom of two kids in the Fayette County schools, this is the kind of person I want to lead our school system.

I saw your post last week on the forum here. I am glad to see that one teacher who worked with Ms. Wenzel liked her. During her years in Fayette County, Lyn Wenzel has worked with hundreds and hundreds of teachers (as assistant principal, principal, and county office bureaucrat). I was beginning to wonder if any of them liked her. It is good to see that one does. Ms. Pakulski, you can probably get some kind of government designation as an endanged species.

More than half of the time during a relatively brief Fayette County Board of Commissioners meeting last week was taken up by more comments regarding the district voting issue.
