At 57, Bloomfield Central School District Superintendent Michael Midey feels he’s young enough to take a step in a different direction.
He just doesn’t know what that direction will be yet, but he is looking forward to figuring it out.
“I have no buckets,” he said during a recent interview. “I have no list of things I want to accomplish.”
Midey, who lives in Seneca Falls, officially retires Dec. 31. The next day, Andy Doell, who is leaving his job as principal at Mynderse Academy in Seneca Falls, will officially replace Midey and soon start making the same commute Midey has been making for more than 10 years.
“The Board of Education worked very hard to find the next superintendent and I know they’re extremely comfortable and looking forward to working with Andy,” Midey said. “Andy’s a great person, a fantastic professional and I know he’ll do well.”
Doell, in a recent letter to the Bomber Nation, notes he has come to appreciate the rich tradition that exists in Bloomfield and the district’s commitment to do what is best for students.
