LA PLATA, Md. (Aug. 4, 2010)—Robert Babiak has been appointed as acting principal of Benjamin Stoddert Middle School, effective immediately. Babiak replaces Sue DelaCruz, who is taking a position as a pupil personnel worker. Babiak’s appointment, announced earlier this week by Superintendent James E. Richmond, must be approved by the Board of Education, which meets next on Aug. 10.

Babiak moves to Stoddert from Matthew Henson Middle School, where he has served as a vice principal for the past six school years. Babiak also served as a vice principal at Mattawoman Middle School from 2001 to 2004. He began his career in education in 1987 as a teacher at Stoddert, where he taught social studies and mathematics and also served as the eighth grade team leader. He transferred to Mattawoman in 1995 and was promoted to vice principal at Stoddert in 2000. Babiak also served as a vice principal during summer school in 2001 and 2002.

Babiak’s appointment is the first of several administrative changes made this week for the upcoming 2010-11 school year. Richmond also named three acting vice principals pending Board approval. They are: Troy Barnes as acting vice principal at C. Paul Barnhart Elementary School; Daphne Burns as acting vice principal at Mary B.
