VCS Names New Director of Humanities

On Thursday, June 10, 2021, the Victor Central School District Board of Education appointed Kristin Williamson as the District’s new Director of Humanities effective July 12, 2021. 

Williamson comes to VCS from the Penfield School District where she spent the past six years as the Director of Humanities and K-2 Virtual Learning Administrator. Before this she spent one year as a K-12 English Language Arts (ELA) Instructional Coach at Penfield and eight years as a kindergarten teacher in Penfield and a school district in Connecticut. 

VCS Superintendent, Dr. Tim Terranova said Mrs. Williamson’s expertise with early literacy in conjunction with her experience with curriculum development and an outstanding knowledge of both secondary ELA and social studies make her the ideal candidate for the new Director of Humanities position at VCS. “She not only has helped to lead a research based approach to teaching literacy across grade levels but has also done an exceptional job tying the New York State social studies framework to highly effective teaching practice at all levels,” Terranova said.

Williamson said she is beyond excited to join the Victor Central School District community. “I look forward to supporting the faculty, staff, students, and families to ensure the best possible learning and teaching environment for all,” she said.

Williamson earned her Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Development and Education and Primary K-4 from University of Delaware and a Master’s Degree in Education Studies with a concentration in Special Education from Springfield College. She also holds certification in Educational Leadership from University of Rochester.
