New Vision Charter School Selects New Principal
LOVELAND, Colo. – (April 14, 2010) – New Vision Charter School has chosen Ms. Carmella M. Schroeder as school principal, after an extensive search by the board appointed hiring committee.
Ms. Schroeder received her B. A. in Elementary Education/Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado. She has a Masters of Education in Educational Administration from the University of Wyoming. She will complete her doctoral work in 2010 with an emphasis on educational leadership and brain-based learning.
Ms. Schroeder spent the previous nine years as principal at Pinnacle Charter School, a large kindergarten through twelfth grade school in Denver. She led a successful Core Knowledge program for a diverse population including special and gifted education students. Her experience in administration, leadership and education will be instrumental in the continued success of the first charter school in Loveland.
She is an affiliate faculty member at Regis University where she teaches in the School of Education. She holds many associations/certifications, and one that fits NVCS particularly well is her status as a Love and Logic trainer.
In order to ensure a smooth leadership transition, Ms. Schroeder will work with current school leadership and staff during the balance of the school year. She will also be meeting with parents, students, Thompson School District and key community stakeholders to build relationships and learn more about our school and community.
New Vision Charter School will soon complete its fourth year as a kindergarten through middle school. The school board, parents and staff are committed to creating and sustaining a school that promotes academic excellence and sets high standards for the personal growth of all its students. Its mission is to be a public school of choice that will produce high achieving model citizens through a content rich educational program and a partnership of students, parents, staff and the community. www.NewVisionCharterSchool.org
