The Falls Church City School Board appointed Jeanne Seabridge the next assistant principal at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School at its meeting tonight. Seabridge will move to her new position from her role as the school’s career and technical education teacher effective August 1.

“Jeanne has already demonstrated superb instructional and leadership capabilities in her role as a middle school teacher and as a K-12 Curriculum, Instruction and Resource Teacher (CIRT) in our school division,” Superintendent Lois Berlin said in a press release issued by the schools tonight. “Her child-centered approach, her proven ability to lead and her personal experience with the Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School culture make her an ideal candidate to serve as the school’s next assistant principal.”

Seabridge is a 27-year veteran teacher who was also a nominee for the 2009 Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher award. Prior to signing on with the Falls Church City Public Schools in 2004, she taught at several elementary and middle schools in Lewisburg and Middletown, Pa. She has also served as a staff development specialist with the Library of Congress. She will succeed the school’s current assistant principal, Gail Lovette, who is leaving to pursue her doctoral degree at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

“The Falls Church City School community is like a small family where we know and care for each other,” Seabridge said in the release. “Being selected to serve as the next assistant principal at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School is a real honor, and I look forward to being an integral part of the tradition of excellence that has served the school so well.”

Seabridge holds a Bachelor of Science degree in art education from Kutztown University in Kutztown, Pa. She earned her Masters in Education degree in curriculum and teaching strategies from Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and in August, she will complete her certification in K-12 administration and supervision through California University of Pennsylvania.
