New Head of School
Williamsburg Northside has just commenced a search for a new Head of School to begin in June 2017. This individual will succeed Dr. Gina Farrar, who is stepping down at the end of this school year. This is a process that we are incredibly excited for as we launch our new Middle School.
The steps of identifying a new Head are being led by the nationally renowned search firm Wickenden Associates and an internal team of parents and educators. The members of our search committee include:
|Shannon Clare||WillNorth PA; Co-President of PA|
|Ali Karshan||WillNorth Parent; former PA Co-President|
|Sarah Mangerson||WillNorth Parent|
|Bridget Lambrechts||WNP Admin; Head of Preschool|
|Jessica Contreras||WNS Faculty – Teaching Staff|
|Libby Hixson||Director of Middle School Planning|
|Kevin McCarthy||Chair of Search Committee|
The Search Committee has completed an Opportunity Statement for all interested candidates. The team is working to announce a new Head to the Williamsburg Northside Community in mid-February. For those interested in the process, below are attachments of our Opportunity Statement, a Search Timeline, and emails with the parent community. Candidates should apply directly through the Wickendon Associates website.
