STEAM Thought Leader To Launch New Program

The San Francisco School

SFS is thrilled to announce that the School has hired Carly Reiter to be the Director of Design, Engineering, and Technology (DDET) starting July 1, 2019. The School was fortunate to have an expansive pool of talented applicants from across the country for this position, which allowed for a rich hiring and deliberation process. This is a brand new position for the school. With the retirement of the current Director of Technology, SFS had the opportunity to restructure its technology staffing and create this forward-thinking position.

SFS is the perfect match for someone with her experience and educational philosophy, which falls directly in line with the mission of the school. Each reference spoke to the fact that Carly is ready for this role.  SFS is excited about the new opportunities that this position will provide for its students and faculty in the coming years, and the leadership team looks forward to partnering with Carly to deepen its STEAM program.
