In One of His Final Moves, McKersie Picks a Deputy Superintendent

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Bill McKersie has announced the appointment of Dr. E. Ann Carabillo as Deputy Superintendent, effective July 1, 2016. Dr. Carabillo is currently the Chief Academic Officer for the Consolidated School District of New Britain, CT.

“I am very excited to bring my passion for continuous learning to support the pathways toward success for the students, educators, support staff and community in Greenwich,” Dr. Carabillo said. “I very much look forward to meeting all of you and jointly continuing the good work already underway in the Greenwich Public Schools.”

With over fifteen years experience in school administration, twenty years experience in a variety of teaching capacities, and a track record of continuous improvement, Dr. Carabillo is well poised to assume the role of Deputy Superintendent of the Greenwich Public Schools (GPS). In this position, she will supervise the K-8 schools, school improvement planning, the summer school program, and the teacher evaluation program, among numerous other responsibilities.

“Dr. Ann Carabillo promises to be a superb leader for the Greenwich Public Schools,” said outgoing Greenwich Schools Superintendent Dr. McKersie. “We have landed a veteran administrator and teacher of diverse expertise (music and special education), known for her dedication to the academic success of all students. Dr. Carabillo also wins plaudits for her record of promoting the social and emotional well-being of students.  Greenwich will benefit from what her colleagues describe as her “insightful, intelligent, passionate and even-keel” leadership style.”

Dr. Carabillo was selected as Deputy Superintendent from among many highly qualified candidates, after a comprehensive search process, which included widespread recruitment efforts, multiple interviews, and extensive reference and background checks.

As Chief Academic Officer for the New Britain Public Schools, in New Britain, CT since 2014, Dr. Carabillo supervises and evaluates central office administrators and building principals. From 2011 to 2015, she served as Director of Pupil Personnel Services (PPS), overseeing the special education program and related service areas. While in this role, she received the Outstanding Alumni Educational Leadership Award from Central Connecticut State University, and the Innovative District Leader of the Year Award from the Institute for School Innovation. Prior to her role as PPS Director, Dr. Carabillo served as Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Staff Development for the New Britain public schools (2006-2011.) Her experience in education administration began as Assistant Principal of Pulaski Middle School in New Britain in 2000, where she was promoted to Principal in 2002.

In Dr. Carabillo’s vast experience in educational leadership, she has provided guidance for and supervision of central office and school building administrators and teachers; directed the revision of curriculum, including the implementation of the CT Core Standards; created professional learning communities to implement research based best practices and used data driven decision making to inform classroom instruction and guide school improvement.

Prior to her roles in education administration, Dr. Carabillo began her career in education as a preschool to grade eight music teacher with the Windsor Public Schools in Windsor, CT. She also subsequently served as a special education teacher for middle school students in an inclusive setting in the New Britain and Glastonbury public schools.

Dr. Carabillo received a bachelors degree in music education from the University of Harford’s Hartt School of Music, Hartford, CT; a master of science in special education, a sixth year certificate in intermediate administration and supervision in 2000, and a doctor of education degree in 2007 from Central Connecticut State University, New Britain, CT.
