Springfield Public Schools announced a new principal for Bissett Elementary starting in the 2020-2021 school year.
Erica Rosenbaum will be assuming the principal position on July 1, 2020, the day after the retirement of current principal Marcie Stallcup.
“I look forward to joining the dedicated staff at Bissett Elementary to continue meeting the needs of all learners – both academically and socially,” Rosenbaum said in a press statement. “I am eager to collaborate with the Bissett community to continue providing a safe, positive and loving learning environment for all students.”
Rosenbaum is currently a learning specialist within the district, working with students at Bowerman, Truman, Twain, and Williams elementary schools, Pleasant View K-8 School, and the Shady Dell & Shining Stars early childhood centers.
Rosenbaum has also served the district as a kindergarten teacher at York Elementary.
“SPS and the Bissett family are pleased to welcome Erica to this important role,” Dr. J. Anderson, executive director of elementary learning for SPS, said in a statement. “Her unique experience as a teacher and learning coach for students, staff and building leaders will serve especially well as principal.”
