Parkland High School will have a new assistant principal this fall.
School directors tonight hired Bethlehem resident Crystal N. George to replace former Assistant Principal Anthony M. Naradko. The vote was unanimous.
Afterward, George said, “I appreciate the opportunity. I’m very excited to get started.”
Superintendent Richard Sniscak released a statement praising George’s credentials and commitment to students. “The Parkland High School team is very excited to have Ms. George join the team. It was evident to the interview committee that she truly cares about children and is committed to their growth and achievement,” he said.
At the close of tonight’s meeting, Sniscak joined school directors in an impromptu welcome of George, who is tentatively scheduled to begin work Thursday, earning an annual salary of $87,000. Her salary will be prorated.
George is currently an English teacher at Freedom High School in Bethlehem Township, Pennsylvania, a position she’s held for 18 years. Over the past year, George also has served as an administrative intern at Freedom, which is part of the Bethlehem Area School District.
In that time she’s performed administrative duties, including developing course schedules, disciplining students and writing curriculum and instruction. George also has experience administering Keystone Exams, tests all state students must pass to graduate high school.
George has a bachelor’s degree in secondary education/English from Cedar Crest College, a master’s degree in educational technology from Wilkes University and principal certification from Moravian College.
