New role call this fall in Rochester Schools

June 29, 2012 by  

When the school bells rings in September, public schools in Rochester will have four brand new principals and assistants in place.

The vacancies were created by Jeff Elstad, formerly of Willow Creek Middle School, who left for Byron Public Schools to become a superintendent. Elstad was replaced by his assistant principal at Willow Creek, Nancy Denzer, who has been with Rochester Public Schools since 1999.

Christina Streiff moves from her role as assistant principal at Kellogg Middle School to principal of Harriett Bishop Elementary School. In the 17 years Streiff has been with the Rochester system, she has been a curriculum developer, teacher, and staff development coordinator.

Brandon Macrafic, who was educated in Rochester public schools himself, moves from Hayfield High School to the assistant principal’s office at John Adams Middle School. Macrafic has taught at all three middle schools in the area and has taught German.
Gibbs Elementary School has promoted a teacher from within to the role of assistant principal. Matt Ruzek has been around since 2001 in a variety of positions.
Movement within schools is common this time of year and presents an excellent opportunity for print companies to drum up business in the form of digital business cards for people who are assuming new roles.

Rochester Public Schools is the seventh largest school district in Minnesota, boasting over 2,100 administrators, teachers and staff. It serves 16,400 students from pre-kindergarten through to Grade 12 in 23 schools. The first day of school this fall will be September 4.
