Mrs. Outhouse -New Assistant Principal at WMS.
As we shared with you earlier this week, Christine Parrottino will be leaving Mount Pleasant at the end of August. Today, I am pleased to announce that Westlake Middle School's new assistant principal is someone that is familiar to all of us and has played an integral role in our community and on our leadership team for the past eight years. Theresa Outhouse, who has served as assistant principal at Hawthorne and Columbus since joining the district in 2015 will transition to assistant principal at Westlake Middle School, effective August 28, 2023. Terri has played a vital role in Mount Pleasant’s vision for teaching and learning to our elementary students. She is a strong instructional leader, who knows and understands effective teaching and learning. The opportunity for her to share these strengths with our middle school students, with whom she already has built bonds at Hawthorne and Columbus, will complement and enhance the thoughtful work being done by Principal Anthony Mungioli and the entire WMS team. She is uniquely positioned to understand our students’ journeys and will readily support their academic, social, and physical growth as middle level learners.
Her background in academics, with a focus on literacy, combined with the administrative skills she has honed working as a key member of our leadership team will be an asset to our middle school students and faculty alike. She has built a meaningful relationship throughout the district on initiatives including the academic program, safety and security, and health and wellness.
