    At its June 2 meeting, the East Maine School District 63 Board of Education approved the appointment of Washington Elementary School’s new Principal – and welcomed back Katharine Anderson, who worked for the District from 2008-2013. Anderson will step into her new role with the departure of current Principal Kristen Ulery, who has accepted a position with Skokie/Morton Grove District 69 after 16 years with District 63. 

    Currently Associate Principal of Student Services at Northshore District 112 in Highland Park, Anderson holds a BA in elementary education from Wisconsin’s Saint Norbert College and an MA in school leadership from Concordia University. She taught kindergarten at St. Colette School in Rolling Meadows – and joined District 63 in 2008 as a special education/autism teacher at Washington. During Anderson’s time at District 63, she also served as a Behavior Development Coach, Substitute Principal for both Melzer and Mark Twain Schools, and Principal for the District’s Summer School before moving to District 112 in 2014.

    "We’re thrilled to have Ms. Anderson back at District 63,” noted Dr. Scott Clay, District Superintendent. “Her history of teaching excellence, familiarity with Washington and the families it serves, and deep understanding of our District’s commitment to meeting the unique needs of all of our students make her the perfect fit.”
