The Verona Board of Education voted unanimously tonight to name the current superintendent of Kinnelon, Diane DiGiuseppe, as Verona’s new superintendent of schools. DiGiuseppe, who will be the first female superintendent in Verona’s history, will start on July 1.

The BOE said that DiGiuseppe started her career at Livingston High School in 1993 as a teacher of biological and environmental science. She became Livingston’s supervisor of science in 2001 and, in 2008, became the director of curriculum and instruction in the Kinnelon Public School District. She became the superintendent in Kinnelon in 2012.

“Over the past 14 years, she has worked hard to improve outcomes for the students of Kinnelon,” the BOE said in a statement. “Among achievements too numerous to list here, highlights include their partnerships with Columbia University Teachers College Reading and Writing Project and with Learning Sciences International, two institutions of educational research designed to help educators improve student achievement through their own growth and development. She revamped the science curriculum and instruction in kindergarten through grade 12, adding course work in Authentic Science Research, participation in the Rutgers University Waksman Student Scholars Program (WSSP), a four-year program in Aviation and Aeronautics, an Allied Health Academy, and offered students the only opportunity in New Jersey to participate in Barcode of Life.” The Barcode of Life created a public library of DNA reference sequences from all living species to support biodiversity science.

DiGiuseppe is a graduate of Rutgers University’s Cook College, where she earned a bachelor of science in natural resource management and applied ecology/wildlife biology. She also holds a masters of teaching and learning from Nova Southeastern University.
