Former Roberto Clemente Middle School Principal Tapped to Head Nashville Schools

May 23, 2016

Last week, the Nashville public school district named former Roberto Clemente Middle School Principal Dr. Shawn Joseph as the new Director of Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. He will lead the 86,000-student school district effective July 1, 2016.

   Joseph served as principal of the Germantown middle school for four years from 2005 to 2009, earning honors as the Maryland Middle School Principal of the Year in 2009.

   The city’s school board unanimously voted Friday morning to offer him the job. Joseph agreed to the terms of the proposed four-year contract by phone, according to a news release from the school system.

   Joseph was serving as a deputy superintendent for two years in the 129,000-student Prince George’s district. He served from 2012 to 2014 as superintendent of the far-smaller Seaford, Del., school system and had a long career as a teacher, principal, and administrator for Montgomery County Public Schools.

   He began his career as an English teacher at Roberto Clemente Middle School in 1997 and taught for four years, until 2001 when he moved on to join the support staff at Benjamin Banneker Middle School in Burtonsville. He was an assistant principal at Redland Middle School in Rockville for three years and was named Principal at Clemente Middle School in 2005. In 2009 he moved on to work as director of school performance at MCPS, he then moved on to become superintendent at Seaford.

   On Monday, May 16, the Nashville Board of Education voted 9-0 to extend an offer to Shawn Joseph for Director of Schools. The contract agreed upon between the Board and Dr. Joseph employ him for a 4-year term, starting July 1, 2016.
