Denver (AP) The Denver Board of Education has appointed Tom Boasberg as the new Superintendent of Denver Public Schools.

The 44-year-old Stanford Law School graduate and former Hong Kong English teacher has been the district's Chief Operating Officer since May 2007. He was unanimously appointed to the Superintendent post in a special board meeting Thursday.

Boasberg replaces Michael Bennet, who was sworn in as Colorado's newest U.S. Senator Thursday after Gov. Bill Ritter picked him to fill the seat left open by Ken Salazar.

Boasberg previously worked in K-12 education and was a junior high English teacher in Hong Kong, where he was a semi-pro basketball player.

Before joining DPS, he worked at Broomfield-based level 3 communications.
