Fox Chapel Area superintendent seeks rapport with students

Monday, March 10, 2014, 9:57 p.m.
 

New Fox Chapel Area Superintendent Gene Freeman said Monday night that his top priority will be to build a rapport with every student in each of the district's six schools.

Freeman, who officially joined the district a week ago, told school board members that he has visited four of the schools.

“The children have been incredibly friendly,” Freeeman, 53, said at his first board meeting at Fairview Elementary School. “I feel like I'm the one who is blessed.”

Freeman, who comes to the district from Manheim Township School District in Lancaster, was hired in December to take the place of the retired Anne Stephens.

The native of North Carolina earned his master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and his education specialist degree from South Carolina State University. His doctorate is from Fayetteville State University. He began his career as a private school kindergarten teacher before serving as a sixth-grade teacher in public school.
