Special to the DailyCarolyn Neff, left, will take on a new school district position as director of elementary education. Nancy Alex will serve as Red Hill Elementary's new principal.

“I am really excited to be back in the district,” Alex says. “It is a great staff at Red Hill and I’m really thrilled to have the chance to work with them.”

Kim Walters will be the principal at Meadow Mountain Elementary. “I’m looking forward to working with the teachers at Meadow Mountain,” Walters said. It’s already a fantastic school and my goal is to carry on that momentum.”

District administrators are comfortable and confident with Walters and Alex. “Both selections are proven leadership products,” Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Staff Development Gary Rito said. “Kim and Nancy have tremendous leadership regarding the TAP program.” Rito went on to say that both Alex and Walters are organized and work affectively with adults and that they are professional and classy. “They are nice role models for leadership,” Rito adds.

Rito’s position will be eliminated this coming year and he will serve as the director of secondary education, which is a perfect fit for the district.

Meadow Mountain’s current principal, Carolyn Neff, will move to the district office where she will serve in a new capacity for the district. As the new director of elementary education, Neff will oversee the eight elementary schools in the district and provide support to the staff and administrators. This is a newly created position by the district with a goal to provide more specific help to elementary and secondary schools. Neff is popular with teachers and administrators and has established herself as an effective leader within the district.

“Carolyn has served as a literacy leader and her background in other districts is in curriculum and instruction,” said Rito. Rito also said that Neff has been instrumental in curriculum leadership and instructional reform in this district. “Carolyn is very tough and tender – she can make the hard calls when she needs to, but she’s exhibits great people skills.”
