Newfield High School welcomes new principal
This week, a new principal will take over Newfield High School. Ms. Robin Hawk, formerly the assistant principal, Drop-Out Specialist and a tenured Spanish teacher in Elmira, will start her debut in Newfield this coming Thursday. A graduate of Mansfield University, Ms. Hawk originally started her career in business and later became a teacher with the support of her mother-in-law. After she found her passion for teaching, Ms. Hawk decided to move up into the administrative side of school to further impact students and their families. So why the switch from Elmira to Newfield? Ms. Hawk says that Elmira’s budget cuts limited the amount of leadership roles available in the district and so given the opportunity at Newfield she decided to take the jump. School starts for Newfield students this Thursday.
