FCPS names new principal for Julius Marks
FCPS Superintendent Manny Caulk has announced the selection of Jennifer Spencer as new principal at Julius Marks Elementary, effective July 1, 2020.
Spencer has more than 16 years of experience in education, having served as an elementary teacher, assistant principal, and principal in Kanawha County Schools in Charleston, West Virginia, where she led one of that state’s Schools of Innovation, creating professional learning communities and 21st century learning spaces to engage students in becoming problem solvers, collaborators, creative thinkers, and student leaders. She moved back to Kentucky last year and now serves as the administrative dean at Southside Elementary in Woodford County. Spencer earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Eastern Kentucky University and a master’s degree in educational administration from Marshall University.
“Julius Marks students and school community will benefit from Jennifer’s diverse experiences, which include head principal and associate principal leadership at multiple schools,” said Elementary Chief of Schools Heather Bell, who oversees Julius Marks. “She has a reputation of providing excellent opportunities for students through creating partnerships, being awarded grants, and enhancing parent and community involvement.”
