Garfield Adams has been appointed vice principal at Robertsville Middle School, a school official said Tuesday.
Adams’ appointment is effective July 1, Oak Ridge Schools Assistant Superintendent Chris Marczak said in a press release.
Adams began his career as a special education teacher in Knox County Schools in 2001. He joined the Oak Ridge Schools in 2004 as an alternative program teacher and remained in that capacity until 2011.
For the past three years, Adams has served as a Small Learning Community (SLC) curriculum assistant principal for South Doyle High School. He has both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in special education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, as well as an educational specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University, Marczak said.
“We are excited to welcome a highly effective administrator to the Oak Ridge School system,” Marczak said. “We know the experience he brings will help us on our journey to meeting the needs of all students.”
