Leadership Changes at Jackson Preparatory

Dear Jackson Preparatory Families,

 

I am writing to let you know we have identified a great interim principal and administrative intern to serve Jackson through the end of the school year.

It is my pleasure to welcome Interim Principal Peter Christensen to Jackson beginning Thursday, Feb. 23. Please say hello when you see him in our hallways and out in the community. Mr. Christensen has been an educator in Saint Paul Public Schools for more than 40 years. He most recently served as a Principal on Special Assignment at four SPPS schools -- Como Park Senior, Creative Arts Secondary, Parkway Middle and Nokomis North Elementary.


Please welcome Mai Kou Xiong, who will serve as Jackson’s administrative intern. Ms. Xiong, who has more than 20 years of experience in education, has been a teacher, community advocate and dual language coordinator in Saint Paul. She is also a published author and developer of Hmong and English curriculum resources.


In her new role, Ms. Xiong will support of the Hmong dual language program. She will continue to build Jackson’s partnerships with Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood and the Hmong American Partnership, and engage the community through Hmong news media.


Please join me in welcoming Mr. Christensen and Ms. Xiong to their new roles at Jackson.


If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at 651-767-8152. Thank you for supporting your child and Jackson Elementary.


Sincerely,



Dr. John Thein, Superintendent
