We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Heidi Paisner-Roffman has accepted the position as Principal of the Wellington Elementary School beginning July 1, 2019.

Dr. Paisner-Roffman is presently an Assistant Principal and English Learners Program Coordinator in the Wayland Public Schools. She began her career in education as a first grade teacher in the New York City Public Schools in 1998. In 2001 Dr. Paisner-Roffman moved to Massachusetts and began a 15 year tenure in the Wayland Public Schools where she worked as a first grade teacher, special education teacher, a special education liaison and team chairperson.

Her tenure in Wayland was punctuated by a three year position in the School of Education at Boston College between 2013 and 2016.

Dr. Paisner-Roffman was awarded a Ph.D.in Curriculum and Instruction from Boston College, a Master’s degree in special education from Bank Street College, and a Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University.
