Bakersville Elementary School to welcome new principal
Josef is not new to Manchester schools. She’s currently assistant principal at Jewett Street Elementary School, a position she’s held since January of this year after serving in the same post at McDonough Elementary School since 2013. Before that, Josef was a guidance counselor at Gossler Park Elementary School for nine years while also taking on some assistant principal duties during that time. She also has planned and directed Manchester’s extended school year program services the past two summers for all pre-k through grade 12 students.
“Kate is a great match for the children and staff of Bakersville,” said Dr. Livingston. “Her experience and enthusiasm make me confident she will be an asset to every aspect of the school community.”
Josef succeeds Judy Adams, who retired at the end of this school year after 43 years of service in Manchester School District, 13 years as principal of Bakersville.
