Principal: Jason Sheedy
AGANA HEIGHTS, Guam — Jason J. Sheedy is returning to the Department of Defense Education Activity Guam District as the new principal of Andersen Middle School.
In 2001, Sheedy began his teaching career in the DoDEA Japan District as an Educational Technologist at Arnn Elementary School located near Camp Zama, Japan. In 2008 he moved on to Yokota West Elementary School—also in Japan—where he continued as an ET until transferring to Guam in 2008 to serve as an assistant principal at Andersen ES. From 2010 through 2012, Sheedy was the assistant principal at Boeblingen Elementary/Middle School in Stuttgart, Germany. Sheedy's most recent assignment was as assistant principal at Hainerberg ES in Wiesbaden, Germany.
During his tenure with DoDEA, Mr. Sheedy has served on steering committees and councils responsible for guiding numerous programs and policies related to the education of military-connected students. Sheedy has also presented professional development sessions on a wide range of topics for teachers and administrators at numerous area and district conferences.
A native of New York, Sheedy's formative years were spent in the suburban town of Amherst. After graduating from high school, Sheedy joined the U.S. Army and served for six years in North Carolina and Germany before receiving an honorable discharge. He went on to attend the University of Maryland where he earned a bachelor's degree in computer science and elementary education with an emphasis in instructional technology. Sheedy completed his Master of Arts in education administration and supervision at the University of Phoenix in 2007.
Sheedy is married with two children and is looking forward to returning "home" to Guam. "Jason's experience has prepared him well to assume the leadership at Andersen Middle School," said DoDEA Guam District Superintendent, Dr. Steve Bloom, "Mr. Sheedy will contribute to the education of each student by focusing on quality instruction and effective communication among staff, community and command."
