    Duxbury Superintendent of Schools John Antonucci announced today that Dr. Danielle Klingaman has been named the district’s new Assistant Superintendent, effective July 1, 2018.  Dr. Klingaman will replace Interim Assistant Superintendent Tim Farmer, who will complete a one-year assignment in June.


    Dr. Klingaman has served as the Principal of the Joseph W. Martin Jr. Elementary School in North Attleboro, MA since 2011, and brings to the table over twenty years of experience as a building leader and special education teacher. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Bridgewater State University, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Northeastern University.  Dr. Klingaman also has served in several statewide leadership roles. She was a member of the MA State Principal's’ Advisory Cabinet for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), a member of the MassCue Board of Directors, and she participated in writing the Guidebook for Inclusive Practice for DESE.


    Antonucci commented, “I am thrilled to welcome Danielle to the leadership team. After a thorough and inclusive search process, I am confident she is a great fit for the Duxbury community. Beyond her impeccable professional and academic credentials, she also brings to the district exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, and a proven track record of effective leadership.” According to Antonucci, current and former colleagues describe Dr. Klingaman as a natural born leader and an outstanding professional in every way.


    “I am honored and grateful to have been selected as the next Assistant Superintendent for the Duxbury Public Schools”, Klingaman said in a statement, “Throughout the search process, I have been thoroughly impressed with the positive enthusiasm of the district and school administrators, teachers, and students that I have had the opportunity to meet.  It is evident as you walk through the halls of the schools that excitement about learning and innovative practices are taking place.  It has been wonderful to see that the Duxbury community is committed to providing students with the resources they need in order to have a well-rounded education that prepares students for college and beyond.  I am looking forward to getting to know the Duxbury staff, students, families, school committee, and community members over the next few months and am eager to share my skills and knowledge in this important role.”
