Veteran educator takes over top Curriculum and Instruction post

GlennWood, District 202's director of high school and middle school curriculum will become the new Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction on July 1, 2012.

Glenn Wood, District 202’s director of high school and middle school curriculum and instruction will be the district’s new Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.

Wood, a 20-year veteran educator will take over the position after three years in his current role. He will replace Dr. Carmen Ayala, who will become the new Superintendent of Schools for North Berwyn District 98 on July 1, 2012.

Prior to coming to District 202 in 2009, Wood served as principal of Victor J. Andrew High School in Orland Park for three years. He started his education career in 1992 as a math teacher at Alonzo Stagg High School, also in Orland Park.

From 2001-2003 Wood served as mathematics and applied technology division chair at Stagg High School, and then was named associate principal in 2003 at Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park. He served in that role until 2006.

“Glenn is a talented, dedicated educator and administrator,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Harper.

“He has been a big part of our team’s work in the last several years to strengthen our curriculum, which has resulted in improved academic achievement – particularly at the high school level. So it makes a lot of sense for him to move into the assistant superintendent’s position,” Harper said.

For his part, Wood said he is honored by the selection and excited to continue the success seen in recent years, even as more changes to state and national standardized testing loom.

“In collaboration with our staff, I look forward to providing direction and support to our schools with student learning initiatives as we continue to give our students the global skills they will need to be successful once they exit Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202," Wood said.
