Welcome from the Head of School

July 2019

Greetings from Chengdu, China! I am looking forward to joining the Seacoast Charter School community in July. During the interview process and my visit in March, I was impressed with the dedication and mission of the school. Through a very thorough process involving all stakeholders, I had the pleasure of meeting with the students, staff, parents, and the Board of Trustees.

I bring to Seacoast Charter School over twenty years of experience in education. I spent my first twelve years teaching in grades kindergarten through the university level, and I have a master’s degree in education and training from American University with a concentration in curriculum development. After spending a year as a director at a primary school in Nigeria, I earned my certificate in administration at Plymouth State University and then my principal certificate. I spent three years at Sant Bani School in New Hampshire as Director of Curriculum and Program prior to my current role as Director of Instruction at Quality Schools International in Chengdu, China. I am returning to New Hampshire in July and am excited to spend time at the school over the summer to get ready for the new school year.

My leadership style is collaborative, and I will spend time listening and learning about the school before working with stakeholders on potential changes. I view families as partners in education and my door is always open to hear concerns and answer questions. I am eager to get to know you all and look forward to our work together.

Please feel free to reach out to me over the summer and throughout next year to tell me about your vision and thoughts for the school.

Enjoy your summer!

Jessica Pine
