Head of School Search

 

On June 26, 2017, Don Grace announced his decision to make the 2017-18 academic year his last as Head of School at Thacher. Since 2013, Don has made significant contributions to Thacher’s growth and to its reputation as an exceptional Montessori school. Don is a dedicated educator, with more than three decades in school leadership, and his generous, thoughtful leadership of Thacher has positioned the school for continued success.

Board Co-Chairs Paul Hutchinson and Judy Farley McFatter, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, sent a letter to the Thacher community in which they expressed their appreciation of Don’s leadership, creativity, high standards, and many accomplishments. They also conveyed the Board’s plan to assemble a Head of School search committee and oversee a search process designed to ensure a smooth and successful transition. The Trustees are optimistic that they will find an individual with the “leadership skills and passion required to lead our school towards its half-century mark in 2021, and beyond.”

Details about the search process, as well as a Head of School job description will be posted very soon. Initial inquiries and candidate nominations may be directed to hos@thacherschool.org.
