The principal of Kodak Park School No. 41 in Rochester, Marion Whitfield, has been elected to the board of directors of the National Association of Elementary School Principals, the association announced Monday.
Whitfield begins her three-year term as director of Zone 2, representing New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, on July 1.
Whitfield has been a member of NAESP since 2010 and a member of both the Association of Supervisors & Administrators of Rochester and the School Administrators Association of New York State since 2006.
She began her education career in 1994 as a teacher at Theodore Roosevelt School, became vice principal of Nathaniel Rochester Community School in 2006 and assistant principal of Mary McLeod School No. 45 in 2009. She took over as principal of Kodak Park School No. 41 in 2010.
“Working in the capacity of zone director will allow me the opportunity to support the principles, practices, and procedures of school administration in my area, while increasing my effectiveness to bringing such supports to my zone,” Whitfield said.
The National Association of Elementary School Principals serves elementary and middle school principals in the United States, Canada and overseas.
