  1. Mr Nembirkow most recently was the Superintendent of the 16,000+ Brockton Public School District from 2004 -2009. During which time the district went from Under-performing status to a Level 1 district.

  2. Welcome to the craziness known as "Southbridge"....after this job, you will most likely never want to be an educator again!
