New principal found for Mount Vernon school


Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman announced last Thursday that Tina Radomsky will be the new principal of Mount Vernon elementary school.

The city School Board approved the hire at its meeting later that night.

We are fortunate to be able to add Ms. Radomsky to our ACPS educational family, Dr. Sherman said. Her extensive experience as an elementary school principal and supervisor will ensure continued 
growth and success at Mount Vernon Community School.

Radomsky currently teaches in school district U-46 of Elgin, Ill., a 40,000-plus-student district the second largest in the state where she also spent four years as executive director of elementary education, according to an ACPS spokesperson. She served as principal at two elementary schools between 1994 and 2005, and also taught elementary and middle school grades in Illinois, Texas and Puerto Rico.

Her bilingual and bicultural background is a must at Mount Vernon, a modified-calendar school with a comprehensive dual-language program of English and Spanish.

Radomsky succeeds current principal Scott Coleman, who is leaving at the end of the school year to serve on the administrative staff of the Graded International School in So Paulo, Brazil.
