Amy Spangler, who spent time as an elementary principal in Oregon, working overseas and in the private education sector, has accepted the offer of the Belmont Public Schools to become the principal of the Wellington Elementary School, said Belmont Schools Superintendent Dr. Thomas Kingston today, Monday, Oct. 29.
"Ms. Spangler has a rich educational background and impressive administrative credentials. She served as a principal in public schools in Oregon for over nine years, provided teacher and parent professional development while stationed with her husband in Japan, and most recently was the Senior Director for Learning and Development for Knowledge Universe, a private educational corporation providing early education and care programs nationally," wrote Kingston.
"Her reputation as an instructional leader, building administrator, long-range planner, and community builder is superb," said Kingston.
Spangler will begin her transition to the new position at the end of November in which she will overlap her tenure with current Wellington Principal Amy Wagner, who retires on Dec. 1.
