ENFIELD — Superintendent Amanda Isabelle is pleased to announce that Angel Burke has been selected to serve as the new curriculum director for Mascoma Valley Regional School District.
Burke began her new role on Thursday, July 1.
She previously served as the academic coordinator for teaching and learning for grades six through 12 at Laconia School District. She has also served as a humanities teacher at Bow High School and an English teacher at Kearsarge Regional High School.
“Angel’s passion for learning, knowledge and student success made her the ideal candidate for this position. Along with that, she has over 23 years of experience in education, which I know will serve her well here at Mascoma Valley,” said Superintendent Isabelle. “We are so happy to have her onboard our team, and on behalf of our teachers, students, faculty and community members, I would like to officially welcome her to the district.”
As curriculum director, she will lead the district in developing and implementing curriculum and instruction programs, manage federal grant programs to best serve the needs of students, report on local, state, and national assessment results, as well as lead professional development programs.
“When I walk into a classroom, my goal is to see happy, prepared, engaged and curious students. I plan to accomplish this through initiatives like the project-based summer learning program which allows students to have a voice in the way they are learning and how it takes shape,” said Burke. “After a year of educating amid COVID-19 restrictions, our students deserve to have some agency over how they learn. Overall, I am most excited to inspire students’ love of learning and excite their imagination through this new role.”
Burke holds a bachelor’s degree in English with a certificate in secondary teaching, a master’s degree in education with a curriculum administration certification and a certificate of advanced graduate studies in educational leadership with a principal certification from Plymouth State University.
