Last summer, the Arlington School District welcomed William Bazyk as the new special education director. Bazyk lives in Manchester, Vermont, with his wife Donna, who serves as a reading teacher at Fisher Elementary School.

Before taking the special education director position for the BVSU, Bazyk held several different positions, “I was at East Longmeadow High School, where I taught special education and coached freshman football and varsity lacrosse. Also, I was the director of pupil services in Greenfield, Massachusetts.”  Bazyk also worked for the Manchester School District as the special education director.

Bazyk’s education started in Virginia, “I went to Lynchburg College for four years; it’s where I met Mrs. Bazyk. I started teaching after that.” Bazyk also attended American International College of Springfield. “Then I received a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS), which is basically a doctorate without doing your dissertation, from Westfield State College.”

In Bazyk’s opinion, the next step for our special education department is creating more alternative learning opportunities within our district. Bazyk enjoys working here, “The people are very warm and inviting, and the students are very polite and courteous.” Why did he chose special education? “I liked working with kids, I liked the opportunity to help children, especially children who didn’t necessarily have a way of standing up for themselves.”
