Charlie Sandler worked at the Eliot School from 1966–2012 as Director, Instructor, and Superintendent, and remained on call for consultation until the end of his long life.

Certified in Vocational Education and Industrial Arts, with a Master’s of Education, he taught and supervised teachers at Hubert H. Humphrey Occupational Resource Center, Fitchburg State College, UMass, Roxbury High School, Dorchester High School, and elsewhere in addition to the Eliot School.

Charlie stewarded the Eliot School through half a century, infusing it with his warm, inclusive approach to life and work. The Eliot School's wood shop bears his name, and the school is establishing a Scholarship Fund in his honor.
