Monica Kissel has been hired to lead Kenneth W. Culbert Elementary School, following the retirement of Jackie Brownell.
Kissel is no stranger to the Culbert school community. She’s served as its assistant principal since 2014. Prior to that, she was the assistant principal of Steuart Weller Elementary School from 2010 to 2014. She served as a consulting teacher in the Department of Pupil Services for one year and as a special education teacher at both Steuart Weller and Potowmack Elementary Schools for four years.
Kissel holds a bachelor’s degree in special education from Penn State University and a master’s degree in education administration from Shenandoah University.
Superintendent Eric Williams announced Kissel’s appointment at the School Board’s meeting last week. “We wish you well in this transition,” he said.
