The following is a statement issued by Fremont Schools Superintendent, Milt Werner, regarding his impending retirement
It is with mixed emotions that I delivered a letter of retirement effective June 30, 2010, to the Fremont Unified School District Board of Trustees. Fremont Unified has been an extraordinary educational home for me over the past seven years. Serving Fremont Unified as the principal of Washington High, the district as Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Superintendent I have been both very fortunate and blessed. The staff, teachers, administrators and parents of Fremont are unique and wonderful individuals. They have been a tremendous pleasure to know and work with. Their efforts have made Fremont Unified a district of excellence in the State of California.
My career spans forty years having started as a science and mathematics teacher in 1970. Serving as an administrator in New Haven Unified, San Leandro Unified and Alameda Unified over a 20 year period I developed and honed skills that have served me well in my years in Fremont.
During retirement I plan to spend more time with my wife and family as well as do some traveling. I have a wonderful wife of 39 years who is a tremendous artist in her own right. We have four grown children (all graduates of UC Berkeley) and one daughter in-law who all live in the San Francisco Bay Area. In retirement I plan to stay involved with educational issues and policies and serve when and where opportunities arise on a part time basis.
The Board of Trustees has been outstanding to work with. I admire them for their tremendous convictions in developing and guiding policy to meet the needs of all students. I wish the Board, the Fremont staff and parents the best as they continue to provide outstanding educational programs and opportunities for all the children of Fremont. In fulfilling all of my duties and responsibilities over the course of this year I will also assist the Board in succession and transition work as appropriate and necessary.
In retiring I wish all the children of Fremont happiness, success and fulfillment.
Milt Werner, Ed.D.
