LINDEN — Diana Braisted, principal of Joseph E. Soehl Middle School, has been promoted to become Superintendent of Schools Rocco Tomazic’s top deputy.
Braisted was appointed as the district’s assistant superintendent at the school board’s Wednesday, July 15 meeting, filling a position that had been vacant for seven months.
Braisted came to the Linden school district in 1987 as a special education teacher, after holding similar posts in Newark and Elizabeth.
She was promoted to supervisor of secondary level special education in 1995, as vice principal of the Myles J. McManus Middle School in 1997, principal of School No. 1 in 1998, and as principal of Soehl Middle School in 2006.
Tomazic said the district is seeking a replacement for Braisted at Soehl Middle School, where he expects to have a new or interim principal in place by September.
Danny Robertozzi, a high school vice principal, has been selected to replace Barbara Muccia, who is retiring effective Sept. 1 as principal of School No. 6.
Tomazic also hopes to fill several other vacant positions, including a vice principal position at Linden High School, a science teacher, librarian, food teacher and part time aide.
