A Message from Your Superintendent
June 6th, 2019
I have some exciting news to share. Karl Anderson, fifth-grade teacher at Fairview, has been named assistant principal of Westbrook. He will replace Kristin Vonder Haar, who will be the new principal. Kristin replaces Dr. Mary Gorr, who will become assistant superintendent for teaching and learning for the District. These changes are effective July 1.
Karl has been a valued member of the Fairview team. He has been teaching there for the past six years, in third grade for five years and most recently in fifth. He started with the District as an instructional assistant at Westbrook, so he has familiarity with the school. Karl also has served on several District and school committees, including the Social Emotional Learning Team, Professional Development Committee, Bilingual Parent Advisory Council, Technology Steering Committee and District Leadership Team.
Karl is an impressive educator and leader and a perfect fit for the key role of assistant principal at Westbrook. I am confident that his classroom experience and the administrative roles he has taken on, along with his collaborative nature, will serve him well in his new position and that the Westbrook community – both staff and families – will be very pleased that he is joining them.
Karl’s teaching position at Fairview will be filled prior to the start of the school year.
I also want to let you know that we are launching the new District website today. Please check out www.d57.org over the summer. I think you’ll like the fresh, new design and expanded news and resources.
I hope your summer is off to a great start!
Dr. Elaine Aumiller
Superintendent of Schools, Mount Prospect School District 57
