The DHS faculty recently promoted a long time employee, Angelo Marrero, as second-level principal overseeing the responsibility and management of students and teacher safety. Additionally, he will make sure both students and staff meet federal and state performance guidelines. 

Angelo Marrero, born in Danbury, has always sought to provide a foundation for his community upon aspects such as teaching, coaching, and building academic skills. He has worked at DHS for 13 years, teaching Social Studies and coaching students for 12 years, prior to his promotion. From his graduation in 2002 from DHS to his undergraduate degree from CCSU to his dedication of 6.5 years toward a master and administration degree between the universities of Bridgeport and New England; Marrero would then go about establishing his dreams through both determination and persistence.

As Marrero stated his purpose is to always “make a difference in [his] community” by educating youth. Outside his administrative capabilities, Marrero also plans field trips and bulletin boards, and other fun and creative activities to the benefit of the students.

As Mr. Donovan explained Marrero was always a top candidate for the position as he was an exemplar of teaching, instructional ability, and was socially exceptional, engaging with both faculty and students with benevolence and care. For Marrero, Mr. Donovan hopes he can use DHS to grow so he can “become the best administrator he can be so he can become even more beneficial to both the students and staff at DHS.”
