Janet Boothby

Every organization has people who are a constant to the organization.  One of those people at Carrabec High School is Janet DJ Boothby. On the uncommon occurrence that Janet is not at school, things truly go out of balance.  As the Principal, I frequently ask Janet to ”deal” with many things, each and every time she is asked, she tackles the issue with a smile and professionalism.

One of the many titles that Janet has in Dual Enrollment Coordinator, where she coordinates with Colleges to provide College Level coursework.  This is an invaluable resource to the students of Carrabec High School. I have heard parents say that, “because of dual enrollment they saved nearly $10,000 dollars in college tuition”.  The success of this program is completely the result of Janet’s leadership.

One of the “titles” that Janet has earned is the 2017 Staff Member of the Year.  This is a coveted title that is selected by the students of Carrabec High School.  While Janet is willing to frequently remind all of us of this award, I cannot think of a staff member that is more deserving.

When I ask a current senior, when I say Ms. Boothby, what do you think of.  “She meets every student where they are”, meaning that whatever is going on in that student’s life be it school, work, or struggles outside of school, she is ready and willing to lend support.  The student also said, “I love Ms. Boothby”. I dare say that there are very few students who would not have the same sediments. She is a special person!

One of this year’s responsibilities is the Freshmen Dean of Students.  As we all know and remember, the transition to high school is difficult at best.  As the Freshmen Dean of Students, it is Ms. Boothby’s charge to help this transition.  From my observations, our freshmen have adjusted to high school and doing well. Recently, a new freshmen student enrolled at Carrabec, Ms. Boothby took the lead, along with a current freshman, to make this new student feel welcome.

Janet is an invaluable member of the Carrabec staff and we are lucky to be able to work with her.  When you see her in the halls say hi and congratulate her on this recognition that she so well deserves!
