After 18 years as teacher and principal at a public school in Boston, Samantha Varano, a Lansdowne native, is moving closer to her roots, writes Mike Lang for the dialog.org.
She’s taking a new principal position at the Lower School at Ursuline Academy in Wilmington, Delaware.
Varano, 40, had been at Thomas Edison K-8 School in Boston for the past 22 years.
Now it was time for her and her husband to come back to the area with their two sons, Dominic and Daniel.
“I absolutely loved my time there,” she said of Boston. “In the time that I was there, I started a family. My husband is from Philly, South Philly, and we had our two sons. They’re both old enough that we said it’s time to come back to where family is, so that’s why we moved back.”
A lot of Ursuline reminded her of her own Catholic school experience at Holy Child Academy in Drexel Hill and at Merion Mercy Academy in Merion Station.
Varano was principal for five years at Edison and an assistant principal and teacher before that.
She’s thinking about a more rigorous curriculum at Ursuline Academy once the pandemic has passed.
