From the desk of Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s Christine Fowler-Mack, Chief Portfolio Officer
The Administrative Team has been selected to lead the new John Marshall High School Campus.
The principals selected are individually and collectively committed to holding dear the values of the Lawyer Legacy-a strong community and excellence in teaching and learning:
Tiffany James, current principal of John Marshall High School, will assume her new position this fall as 11th and 12th Grade Principal. Seven of her 17 years of service as an educator has been at CMSD. Currently a doctoral candidate, Ms. James remains committed to strengthening the partnerships she has already nurtured in the John Marshall community, including the Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation and PPG.
Sara Kidner will leave her three-year position as Principal at Success Tech to become the Principal for John Marshall School of Civic and Business Leadership this fall. Prior to coming to CMSD, she served Saint Martin de Porres High School as its Work Study Director, training students in business internships at over 140 companies in Cleveland and designing the curriculum for the national Cristo Rey Network of Schools.
Chelsey Cook, a member of the CMSD Aspiring Principal cohort from 2014-2015, will join the John Marshall High School staff as Principal of the John Marshall School of
Information Technology. A former science teacher in Texas, Chelsey previously served as STEM Magnet Coordinator for the San Antonio district where she planned and implemented the CodeHS program and earned recognition as not only the second largest but among the best in the nation. JMH School of Information Technology will focus on computer science, which is to say on software knowledge, like coding, gaming, mobile apps, and websites.
Timothy Primus brings 10 years of experience as a Technology Coordinator and Engineering teacher to his new position as Principal of John Marshall School of Engineering. Mr. Primus previously served the Durham Public School District in North Carolina as Assistant Principal before joining the Aspiring Principal Program at CMSD where he was assigned to New Tech East.
