July 20, 2012— The Elizabethtown Area School District Board of Education unanimously approved Timothy Re as the principal at Elizabethtown Area High School. Re comes to Elizabethtown from Central York High School where he has been an assistant principal since 2008.
“Tim is a proven leader in the areas of curriculum, professional development, and supervision,” said Michele Balliet, superintendent of schools. “I am confident Tim will bring strong leadership to our high school and foster positive community relations with our students, their families, and the community at large.”
Re was hired following an extensive search process that involved a series of panel interviews. The interview team was comprised of district and school administrators, teachers, school board members, and parents. Re replaces Kathleen Griffith who will be involved in the district’s initiative to support students through non-conventional programming including online learning, credit recovery, drop-out prevention, post-secondary preparation, and alternative education.
At Central York, Re was responsible for many facets of the schools instructional program including but not limited to supervising and evaluating more than 125 teachers and staff members, working closely with the middle school to revise the curriculum and ease the transition to the high school, and leading professional development initiatives.
Re’s teaching experience includes having served as a science teacher at Susquehanna Township in Harrisburg, PA, as well as Weddington, Sun Valley, and Monroe High Schools in North Carolina.
Re completed his education at York College of PA where he received a master degree in educational leadership and a bachelor degree in biology/secondary education. He is currently enrolled in a doctorate program at Drexel University. Re has also been certified by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards in adolescence and young adulthood science.
Re will begin his duties in Elizabethtown in August.
