Mr. Aaron Sborz, Principal
Hello Blazer Learning Community,
The 2020-2021 school year marks my 16th year in education. I previously served as a technology education teacher, assistant principal, and in my current role as principal. My previous experience has given me the foundation to conquer what lies ahead. This learning environment will challenge previously held assertions that learning only occurs in a classroom. Our staff and students are embarking on a truly original voyage: hybrid learning. A journey not defined by the content, but by the immense change in thinking. Education can no longer be defined by books, walls, and seats in rows. It will be defined by the connections teachers make with concepts and students. Learning is moving at exponential rates, and we can not be hampered by the notion that students need to be in a brick-and-mortar classroom with a teacher to learn.
Adjusting to this new normal will not be easy and it requires a different level of commitment. But, ultimately, we are entering a revolution in education. In the 70s, calculators were revolutionary. In the 80s, computers changed our perception and methods of education. Today, hybrid and virtual learning are shaping our instructional delivery. Education without these technological advances would look immeasurably different. It’s hard to imagine math class without TI-83 calculators or research without computers and the Internet. But when those changes were first introduced, teachers, parents, and students expressed concerns about how they would impact learning. Once we all adapt to the shift to hybrid and virtual education, I hope that we will agree that learning is more stream-lined and allows students to ascend to a new level of understanding and comprehension.
I know this year is going to be different than any other, but different is not always a bad thing. Different can be us embarking on a new journey, together, to embrace innovation. What this system will look like years from now, no one will know. We will continually find ways to adapt and improve what we do. Our core vision throughout our journey will always be “Learning Together, Advocating for All.”
I look forward to 20-21 and I know our Blazers will do amazing things.
Ms. Amy Dombrowski, Assistant Principal
Dear Daniel Boone Teachers, students and parents,
It is with great enthusiasm that I move into the role of Assistant Principal at Daniel Boone High School. I will be starting my journey as a Blazer on September 28, 2020. Though I am new to the Daniel Boone community, I did not grow up far away. I was born and raised in Boyertown and am a Boyertown Senior High graduate. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate studies at Kutztown University with my administrative degree coming from Edinboro University.
My educational career started at Whitehall High School in the Lehigh Valley for 6 years and then I transitioned South after meeting my husband. He is currently an active duty member of the United States Army. I have taught high school Social Studies in both North Carolina and Georgia for over 12 years and then transitioned into administration. Most recently, I was the Assistant Principal at Gray’s Creek Middle School in Hope Mills, North Carolina. Being a military spouse has provided me with some amazing opportunities to work in a variety types of schools up and down the East Coast. Outside of school, I am married to my husband Ommannan and have two children Jackson who is 12 and Sydney who is 9. We also have a mini farm of two dogs, one bunny, a lizard and 4 chickens.
High school is such a special and exciting time in a student's life. My goal is to help them succeed in all aspects of their high school career while working with all the stakeholders. This year will maybe look a little different but we want our students, staff and parents to have the best experience they can. I have an open door policy so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or successes.
The 2020-2021 school year will be my 20th year in education and I am thrilled it will be at Daniel Boone High School.
Assistant Principal, Grades 9 and 12
