Justin Wexler, contributing author to The Round Table, sat down with interim principal Rodney Bass. Here’s what they talked about:


TRT: Do you plan on making any changes to Stamford High while you are here?

Bass: I was told from Stamford’s superintendent that I’m on a day-to-day schedule and to go along with the routine.  Also, to only make changes as things occur.  We’re waiting for a permanent replacement.


TRT: Is there anything that Stamford High did when you were principal before that you would like to see brought back?

Bass: Provide a better educational experience for kids.  Education is the most important thing to me, and I want to make school the best six or seven hours of a student’s day.


TRT: What is your favorite Stamford High Memory?

Bass: In ’09, when all the sports were doing really well. We were FCIAC champs in basketball, had a good football team, we were state champs for field hockey. It was Moriarty’s first year.


TRT: Who is your favorite other administrator?

Bass: I have good chemistry with the other administrators; I work with the team.


TRT: Have you ever gotten lost in Stamford High?

Bass: Yes, the worst is going from the soccer field to the front office.


TRT: If you had to get one thing from the vending machine, what would you get?

Bass: Pretzels; I like the salty crunchy combo.


TRT: How long do you plan on staying at Stamford High for?

Bass: No timeline.


TRT: If you weren’t here right know what would you be doing?

Bass: Fishing, probably.
