Weaver, Eckhardt to Retire

Edwardine Weaver, RSM, assistant professor, and John Eckhardt, assistant professor, have each recently announced their plans to retire on June 30.

Weaver supervises graduate student field placements in the educational leadership program, and directs the Catholic School Leadership Program. She has been on the faculty of Warner since 1987, serving as the director of the office of professional development until 2001. Prior to that, she was the superintendent of schools for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester. She has also taught elementary and middle school classes, served on the boards of the Rochester Junior Achievement and Boy Scouts of America, was vice president of the New York State Council of Catholic School Superintendents, and is the current president of the Monroe County Catholic School Board.

Eckhardt has been on the faculty since 1998. He has also been a K-12 educator for nearly four decades, serving as a history teacher, assistant principal, high school principal, director of secondary education, assistant superintendent of educational services, and superintendent in both the Canandaigua and Brighton school districts.

In addition, as reported in the January 2005 issue of the Warner Word, Harold Wechsler, professor will also be leaving Warner after accepting the position of professor of Jewish education and educational history in the department of humanities and the social sciences and the professions in the Steinhardt School of Education at New York University.

The faculty, staff, and students at the Warner School wish them all well in their future endeavors.
