Lawrence school administrators have hired assistant principals for two of the district's secondary schools.
Bernadette B. Barber, a teacher at Eisenhower Middle School in Kansas City, Kan., has been hired for the post of assistant principal at Central Junior High School. She will be replacing Laurin Wilhelm, who will leave the administrative post in the fall to teach at Central.
Barber, 43, has been in education for 20 years, often teaching classes of students with behavior disorders. She also has served as a behavior specialist for the Wyandotte County Special Education Cooperative. In that work, she would travel to different schools consulting teachers and principals on classroom management and student discipline.
Ted S. Juneau, a social studies teacher at Lawrence High School, has been selected as assistant principal for the high school. He'll be replacing John Forbes, who is retiring.
Juneau, 40, has taught at LHS since 1981 and was head basketball coach for eight years during that time.
Juneau also has coached girls golf and has been an assistant coach for girls and boys track.
As assistant principal, Juneau will be responsible for student discipline. The other responsibilities of Forbes, facilities maintenance and student activities, will be taken over by LHS Athletic Director Darrell Falen.
