Mr. Palmer is currently serving as Acting Principal at Tawanka Elementary School, replacing Robin Klaiber who left for a Principal position with the Lower Merion School District in August.
According to Neshaminy School District Superintendent of Schools Joseph Jones III, the selection process to fill these two positions started over the summer.
A committee that included administrators, teachers, parents and School Board members reviewed qualifications and interviewed potential candidates.
“We were impressed by the quality and credentials of the all candidate,” he said. “After careful consideration and input from a variety of stakeholders, we are confident that these two individuals have the leadership capabilities, skills and personalities that will inspire excellence from their staff and students while maintaining strong, caring learning environments at their schools.”
“Mr. Palmer has already demonstrated these qualities in his previous and current roles at Neshaminy, and Ms. Washam is a welcome addition to our District leadership team.”
