The Board of Directors announced on Nov. 17 the appointment of Susannah Wolf as its next Head of School. She was selected from an impressive pool of candidates following an extensive nationwide search and will succeed the Interim Head of School, Erik Carlson, on July 1, 2023.
With three decades of experience as an administrative leader and teacher, Susannah comes to PS1 with an exemplary record of creating innovative educational programs and fostering collaboration throughout her career. Currently, she is the Head of School at The Miquon School, an Nursery-6th Grade progressive School, in Conshohocken, PA, which she attended as a child. Susannah brings highly relevant experience from her eight-year tenure at Miquon, including child-centered multi-age classrooms, supporting matriculation to secondary schools, diversity, equity, inclusion and justice initiatives and long-range strategic planning.
In response to the announcement, Wolf said, “PS1’s mission, vision and philosophy align so closely with my own. I look forward to joining and leading a team of educators and a community that trusts children, holds positive expectations for potential, creates spaces that encourage belonging, and centers joy in the daily living for children and adults.”
