    To The Editor:

    Newtown, we have a remarkable new school superintendent!  For the eight years he was Southington's superintendent of schools, I was honored to work closely with Joseph Erardi, Jr.  In my 43 years as a high school English/Language Arts teacher, I encountered scores of administrators.  Sadly, some followed the Peter Principles' rise to be competent with adults but disenfranchised around students.
