Board approves hires for administrator posts

By

Two new administrators are joining the Dublin City School District.

The Dublin Board of Education last week approved Corinne Evans as Grizzell Middle School principal and Kimberly Mill as chief academic officer.

Evans will start as principal of Grizzell this fall when Brian Lidle leaves for the director of professional learning position with the Hilliard City School District.

"We had multiple parents and multiple teachers and staff involved in the interview process," said Todd Hoadley, Dublin superintendent.

Evans has been with the district since the start of her career as a reading teacher at Dublin High School.

She taught in the classroom for 16 years, teaching science and reading at Davis, Sells and Grizzell middle schools and science at Coffman High School.

Evans became the assistant principal at Coffman High School in 2012.

"I'm really excited," Evans told board members May 27.

"I know everyone is ready for school to end, but I'm excited for it to start."

Miller's job as chief academic officer is new for Dublin City Schools.

The new job is replacing an assistant superintendent position.

Michael Trego currently holds the assistant superintendent position, but will retire this summer.

Hoadley said Miller brings a varied background with her to Dublin City Schools.

"The fact that she has been a building leader and principal was very important in this," he said, adding Miller had great support from teachers who participated in the interview process.

Miller has been in education for 25 years. She held jobs as assistant superintendent with the Loveland City School District, as a middle school principal, assistant elementary principal, language arts teacher and reading and English teacher.

Miller also spent some time as a standards and gifted education consultant.

"She has a strong gifted background too," Hoadley said.

"I'd like to see the gifted programs ... take a step ahead."
