Sean Beddow is enthused to be the new superintendent of schools in Lambert.
He comes to Lambert with 13 years of experience in education and coaching, but this is his first position as an administrator.
“I’ve been encouraged to go into the administration route by my peers and supervisors,” Beddow explained. “They felt I could succeed in the leadership role.”
His experience includes teaching science for nine years at Shepherd, Missoula Hellgate and Roundup. He started his duties in Lambert on July 1.
Although he has 13 years of coaching experience including football, girls basketball and boys basketball, he doesn’t anticipate serving in that role. He said he will coach in an “as needed” situation.
“It’s something I’ve always had a passion for,” Beddow said of coaching. “Right now, I’m looking forward to this next challenge.”
Part of what attracted Beddow to Lambert is having family in the Wibaux and Glendive areas.
“After visting a few times, we were very impressed with the community and people,” Beddow said.
He is also impressed with the school itself. “They have done a great job building their facilities.”
Currently, work is being done to build a concessions area in the school’s sports plex and also a bus barn near the old football field.
“That would really round out our facilities,” Beddow noted.
Beddow, 36, and his wife, Angela, have sons Charlie, 7, Henry, 4, and Brady, 1.
“I’m really excited,” Beddow said of the position. “I’m excited about my new role and working with the community.”
