After conducting a national search our committee has narrowed the pool of candidates for Lower School Director to three finalists. We invite you to meet each of these thoughtful educators and to give us feedback as we move toward the selection of our next Early Childhood and Elementary School Division Leader.
The candidates will be meeting with different constituency groups, visiting classes, touring our campuses, and immersing themselves in The Roeper School community. Please note the dates for each visit and join us at the appropriate meeting. An online survey will be made available to you to provide written feedback to the committee.
We know that the time before spring break is fast upon us, and have worked very hard to schedule our finalist visits before that break. Our goal is to ensure a timely process for the candidates and to bring to our community a strong group of highly sought after educators.
A brief resume of each candidate will be made available at each meeting. Listed below are the dates for the visits and an itinerary of the scheduled meetings.
Wednesday, March 26 – Bruce Werber
Wednesday, April 2 – Leslie Hosey
Friday, April 4 – Becky Rosenberg
As our process enters its final phase, I want to extend some important thank yous. First, thank you to our search committee: Andi Akkashian, Carolyn Lett, Colleen Potocki, Jarie Ruddy, and Cathy Wilmers for their time, effort and hard work in moving our process forward. Next, thank you, to Kari Papadopoulos for helping to facilitate the search process and for organizing our candidate visits.
Finally, thank you to you – our community – for your partnership, and for the insight you will share with our committee. I look forward to hearing your points of view and to the naming of our next Lower School Director.
