Retired administrator/teacher picked as interim Albion elementary principal
ALBION – A familiar face to the Albion school district will be serving as interim principal of the Ronald L. Sodoma Elementary School.
Maura Pierce started on Wednesday. She worked for the school district for 34 years until retiring in 2013. She has been serving the district in other capacities, including as evaluator of teachers and as an interim principal in the high school.
“I am looking forward to celebrating my 41st first day of school in the Albion district this year,” Pierce said. “I’m thankful to once again be able to serve our district and be part of the Purple Eagle family.”
Pierce started her career at Albion as a high school English teacher. She worked as an administrator in all three buildings. She was the School to Career coordinator and director of Special Education.
“Albion is a special place – one where I chose to spend my career and put down roots,” Pierce said. “My husband and I are very happy to once again be living in our community.”
She is stepping in as interim principal following the resignation of Rachel Curtin, who was the principal the past seven years. Curtin took a job as principal of the Chautauqua Lake Elementary School in Mayville. That is near her hometown of Ripley.
