Today, I am very pleased and proud to announce the appointment of Ms. Karen McDavitt to the position of Principal of Glover Elementary School. Ms. McDavitt comes to us with 13 years of experience as an educator.
Ms. McDavitt holds a bachelor’s degree from Skidmore College; a master’s degree from Lesley University; and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) in Educational Leadership from Boston University.
Ms. McDavitt is currently employed as a teacher in the Cohasset Public Schools, where she has held various leadership positions since 2008 and was selected as a semifinalist for Massachusetts Teacher of the Year in 2012.
Prior to Cohasset, Ms. McDavitt was a teacher at the intermediate level in Ipswich, where she served as the English Language Arts Coordinator for K-5; Chair of the Writing Committee; Student Leadership Mentor and Leader; and Literacy School Library Creator and Coordinator.
Ms. McDavitt possesses many qualities which will make her an effective principal. These include a strong knowledge of curriculum and instruction, an ability to work collaboratively and a love for education and for her profession. I am confident that Glover parents/guardians, teachers, staff and most importantly, students, will continue to flourish under the leadership of Ms. McDavitt.
