A teacher and math specialist at the Edgartown School, a special education director from New York and the director of a small private school in Maryland are all finalists for the Edgartown School principal job.

Superintendent of schools Dr. Matthew D’Andrea released the names of finalists and their resumes on Wednesday. Principal John Stevens announced his retirement late last year.

Kate Lefer, who has taught in Edgartown since 2011, also previously taught in West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs. She holds a certificate for administrator license from the Massachusetts Elementary School Principals’ Association and a master’s of science in early childhood education from the Bank Street College of Education in New York.

Shelley Einbinder-Fleischmann serves as special education director for a cooperative that includes 18 school districts in the Putnam and Northern Westchester area of New York state. She holds a doctor of education in educational leadership and a master of professional studies in special education from Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y. She owns a home on the Vineyard.

Shaun Johnson currently writes and develops curriculum for a private K through 12 school in Bethesda, Md. He holds a doctor of philosophy in curriculum and instruction from Indiana University, a master of arts in teaching from American University, and a post masters certificate in administration and supervision from Johns Hopkins University.

Ms. Einbinder Fleischmann and Mr. Johnson both visited the school this week. Ms. Lefer will have her meetings with stakeholders next Tuesday, Mr. D’Andrea said.

A search committee for the position included parents, teachers, and Edgartown community members. Mr. D’Andrea said there were more than 15 applications including from a few other Island applicants. The committee chose seven candidates for interviews before deciding on the finalists.

The superintendent said he expects to make a decision next week.

Mr. Stevens, who grew up in Edgartown and graduated from both the town elementary school and the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, has been principal for the past 12 years. He returned to the Island after a 30-year career rising through the ranks of school administration in southern Florida.

He will retire at the end of June.

“He will be missed, and we very much appreciate all the great work he’s done here,” Mr. D’Andrea said.
