New Face At Dewing Elementary

Loella F. Dewing Elementary School welcomes a new principal

September is a time for change. The weather begins to cool, leaves starts to change and students begin a new grade.

At the it’s not only the young students who will be making a change. This year, the school will also have a new face, Paul Galello, in the principal’s office.

With degrees in both Communications and Educational Leadership, Galello brings with him a solid background in education. The recent classes and workshops he has completed have been geared toward both classroom teaching and administration.

A classroom teacher for 10 years, Gallello taught at both the Peter Fitzpatrick Elementary School in Pepperell as well as the John McCarthy Elementary School in Peabody.

Galello’s career in administration began in Winchendon, when he took over as Assistant Principal at the Toy Town Elementary School, a grades 4 to 6 building.

From there, he became the Lead Teacher/Assistant Principal and, eventually, Acting Principal at The John MCarthy Elementary School in Peabody. There, Galello headed up a Pre K to grade 5 Program.

Most recently, Galello served as Building Principal at the Brookside Elementary School in Dracut serving grades K through 4.

On August 30 Galello will officially take the helm at the and a new school year will be officially underway.

I heard that some parents from that school in Dracut didn't like his stricter rules for the school. I heard that he is fair and definitely not a pushover. He holds himself, teachers, kids, parents accountable. He doesn't play favorites.

Ditto that! Looking forward to the upcoming school year.

Yes, please give him a chance. I wrote him a letter and got a personal phone call from him - talk about a great first impression! I'm positive he will be great for the Dewing!!!
