Dear Resurrection community,
After an extensive search, I am most pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Colleen Brewer (pictured below) as the next Principal of Resurrection College Prep High School. Ms. Brewer has 14 years of service in all-girls Catholic High Schools including her time as Principal at St. Scholastica Academy and Dean of Students at Regina Dominican.
Ms. Brewer graduated from University of Dayton with her B.S. in secondary education in mathematics and religious studies, later completing her Masters in Instructional Leadership from Loyola University in Chicago. Currently, she is pursuing a Doctor of Education in Administration and Supervision at Loyola University Chicago.
Most recently, Ms. Brewer served as a Regional Director for Turnaround Schools in the Office of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago. In this role she collaborated with the local school and parish leadership teams and coached a portfolio of principals to help them implement best practices in academics, enrollment strategies and operational vitality. As our Principal and the leader of our teaching and learning, Ms. Brewer will bring her wealth of experience as a math teacher, department chair, instructional leader, collaborator and faith leader to our administrative team.
Ms. Brewer struck me as a leader who is grounded in her faith, connected to her calling to lead young women, and resounds the Gospel joy that we all seek. I have every confidence that Ms. Brewer will take the great work that we have done in teaching and learning and bring it to the next level! I am most thankful that our Lord, in His abundant mercy, has sent us an authentic Servant Leader as a partner as we move into this next chapter of our history.
Please join me in welcoming her to the Resurrection community. Ms. Brewer will be making several announcements in the upcoming weeks as we prepare for the 2021-22 school year; please watch for her communications.
De La Salle,
Dr. Rick Piwowarski
Resurrection College Prep High School
