Shreveport, LA United States

St. Mark’s seeks a dynamic, enthusiastic, engaging Head of School to begin July 1, 2023, who is devoted to the school’s Episcopal mission, appreciative of its parish school history, and prepared to work closely with the Board of Trustees to secure a vibrant vision for the school’s future. The next head of school must be a superb communicator who values transparency, fosters trust, inspires teamwork, and has experience promoting a culture of excellence. An individual with a track record of building and maintaining strong institutional and interpersonal relationships while connecting to the broader Shreveport community will lead St. Mark’s. The next head of school must have a passion for two-year-old to eighth pedagogy, demonstrate a genuine knowledge and love for children, offer ease in making fair and firm decisions, enthusiastically encourage participation in academics, fine arts, and athletics, and joyfully provide leadership in spiritual development, faculty empowerment, enrollment management, and student achievement. This is an exceptional opportunity to lead a highly regarded private school with an unwavering commitment to student success and an enduring grounding in its Episcopal identity.
