Welcome to our first installment of “Meet a Maverick,” a new series of stories introducing you to the mavericks making waves in the Nueva community.

First up, Elizabeth Rossini, Nueva’s new Director of Teaching and Learning. Last year, Nueva embarked on a self-study as part of our most recent accreditation process. Elizabeth’s new role is one outcome of that deep dive. She will be working with faculty to look strategically at the scope and sequence of curriculum at Nueva. As a school, we are continuously asking ourselves, “How can we optimize learning?” Elizabeth’s work will focus on improving curricular coherence PreK–12, while ensuring that our learning culture continues to be flexible and responsive to students’ and teachers’ passions. Watch Elizabeth’s story to learn more about her new role at Nueva, her experiences as an educator, and other fun tidbits about her.
