The Princeton Public Schools Board of Education has made an appointment for the newly created position of supervisor of elementary education.
Sarah Moore, who is the supervisor of literacy and intervention in the Robbinsville Public Schools, was named to the new post at the school board’s Aug. 2 special meeting.
Moore will earn $129,000 per year on a pro-rated basis. She begins her new role on Aug. 22.
Moore will coordinate curriculum, instruction and professional development at the Community Park, Johnson Park, Littlebrook and Riverside elementary schools, school district officials said.
She has worked as an educational supervisor, an interventionist who works with young children to overcome difficulties, and as a teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing, officials said. She holds two master’s degrees in education from The College of New Jersey.
Moore has expertise in multi-tiered systems of support, English language arts, the science of reading, special education and professional development planning, officials said.
The creation of a supervisor of elementary education, which is budget-neutral, is part of a reorganization of several supervisor positions. The school district is drafting its new strategic plan, and one of the targeted areas is the focus on early years – ages 3 through third grade, officials said.
Joy Barnes-Johnson, who was the Princeton High School chemistry and racial literacy educator, is the district’s new grades 6-12 supervisor of science.
Keisha Smith-Carrington, who was the former grades 6-12 humanities supervisor, was named to the new post of grades 6-12 humanities supervisor.
Stephanie Tidwell will continue as the math and business education supervisor, focusing on grades 6-12.
