Lisa Stevenson to become principal of Neil Armstrong Elementary beginning in July 2012

The Bettendorf Community School District has announced that Thomas Jefferson Elementary School Principal/BCSD Preschool Director Lisa Stevenson will become the principal of Neil Armstrong Elementary School in July 2012.

"This is a win-win for everyone in the district and our community," said Dr. Theron J. Schutte, superintendent. "Lisa will bring a high quality of leadership and service to the Neil Armstrong Elementary School family, further enhancing their culture and programs."

This is Stevenson's second year in her current position within the district. As she transfers to her new school in July 2012, her preschool leadership responsibilities will be assumed by Kim Hofmann, director of student services for the Bettendorf Community School District.

Prior to her position with the Bettendorf schools, Stevenson served five years as the curriculum director for the West Liberty Community School District as well as a year as the director for the West Liberty Early Learning Center. She has a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education from the University of Iowa and a Master of Arts in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University. In addition, she has earned a Master of Arts in educational administration from the University of Iowa and is working toward a Doctorate of Philosophy in educational administration from the University of Iowa.
