Katie Caggia Named Glenwood Elementary Principal

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education, at its meeting on October 6, approved Katie Caggia as the new principal at Glenwood Elementary.  She replaces Dr. Darlene Ryan, who is now serving as the district's Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

Caggia is currently at Estes Hills Elementary, where she serves as the school's assistant principal.  She is also the district's reigning Assistant Principal of the Year.

"Katie Caggia is an excellent choice to lead Glenwood Elementary," said Senior Executive Director of Human Resources Arasi Adkins.  "She has enjoyed a tremendously successful career as an educator.  Her understanding of quality instruction is only matched by her passion for student success.  She demonstrates superior leadership skills, and is an expert at building relationships with students, staff and parents."

Prior to her arrival at Estes Hills Elementary in 2013, Caggia was a principal intern at Green Hope Elementary in Cary.  She also served as a teacher for 15 years at Olive Chapel Elementary in Apex.

Caggia received both her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
