My name is Dr. Ann Marie Vaughn and I am excited to be starting my second year as Principal of Clear Run Intermediate School. Prior to coming to CRIS I served as Assistant Principal at Pocono Mountain West Junior High and before jumping into my administrative career, I served as a teacher in the Nazareth Area School District for 10 years, teaching Math, ELA, and Science. I am a graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, and hold instructional certificates in English as a Second Language (ESL), Middle Level Math and Middle Level Science. I also have two Master’s Degrees in Classroom Technology and Educational Development and Strategies through Wilkes University. Finally, I completed my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Delaware Valley University where my research has led to changes and initiatives at the state level for teachers and administrators.
Personally, I live with my husband and three children in Easton, PA, where I grew up as well. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, our dogs, taking hikes, going on bike rides and staying active.
I am incredibly humbled and excited to be working with Clear Run Intermediate School students, families and the community. I look forward to working together to overcome a number of challenges which are presented to us throughout the school year. Here at CRIS it is incredibly important that we foster a strong school community and we involve students, parents and community stakeholders in a number of after school events. I strongly believe that a solid relationship between school and home fosters a firm educational foundation and reinforces the importance of education both at home and in school. I am here to help students, their families and the community navigate through that journey to achieve positive outcomes, and I am grateful for that opportunity.
