Robert Thibault

SOUTHERN VERMONT - Robert “Bob” Thibault has been announced as the incoming superintendent for Windham Central Supervisory Union to replace outgoing superintendent William Anton, who has served in the role since 2015. Thibault will begin his tenure as superintendent July 2023.
Thibault, who is the current principal at Leland & Gray Union Middle and High School, has been working in Vermont’s education system since 1989, when he was a student at the University of Vermont. He obtained a BA in history before starting teaching social studies at Leland & Gray, where he spent seven years. In 2002 he obtained an MEd in educational leadership from UVM. He was then the assistant principal at Mohawk Trail Regional High School in Massachusetts and principal at Springfield (VT) High School before returning to Leland & Gray, where he has served as principal for the past seven years. Thibault was named principal of the year in 2015 and was the 2019 to 2021 president of the Vermont Principals’ Association, where he currently sits on the executive council.
Windham Central Supervisory Union includes schools within the West River Education District - NewBrook School, Jamaica Village School, Townshend Elementary, and Leland & Gray - and serves the towns of Wardsboro, Marlboro, Dover, Windham, and Stratton. Thibault is eager to expand his knowledge about the people and culture at each school and aims to ensure that schools can implement their curriculum and programs while being supported within the SU. He sees his role as a leader of leaders and as one to build high quality educational experiences that are fiscally responsible.
Aside from work, Thibault loves spending time with his seven children and wife, an administrator at BUHS. He is also an amateur woodworker and enjoys playing basketball.
