December News


Leadership Changes
Principal Eileen Nash will be joining the Boston Public Schools executive leadership team in the role of Deputy Superintendent of Individualized Learning, effective January 2013. Current Beethoven & Ohrenberger Vice Principals Ed Puliafico and Naomi Krakow will become co-prinicipals and John Chojnowski will be appointed as vice principal of the Ohrenberger.

In the words of Superintendent Carol R. Johnson, “Over the past three years, Principal Nash has done a tremendous job as principal of both buildings. Through her leadership, the Beethoven/Ohrenberger K-8 has become a highly chosen, highly functioning K-8 school, one that can serve as a model through the district. Because of her proven success, I have no doubt in my mind that she was the best person for the job of Deputy Superintendent of Individualized Learning. I also have no doubt in my mind that all of the excellent work that has taken place at the Beethoven/Ohrenberger under Ms. Nash’s leadership will continue after she leaves. During her tenure, she invested significant time and energy into developing a strong leadership team. …I am confident that the Beethoven/Ohrenberger will continue to grow and thrive…”
