Dear Howard School Community,
Following a comprehensive, thoughtful search process, I am excited to share with you that Rebecca Daws will be the new Director of Enrollment Management (formerly Director of Admissions), beginning on July 1, 2023.
Rebecca came to The Howard School in 2021 to serve as a Speech-Language Pathologist in our Lower School. In addition to her outstanding work every day with our students, Rebecca is Co-chair of the Writing Curriculum Committee – a committee dedicated to supporting the individual needs of Howard students through curriculum development and co-teaching.
Rebecca has spent the better part of her career providing speech and language evaluations and therapy to children. She brings passion, leadership, and deep understanding of our students and our mission to her work every day here at Howard, and I am thrilled that she will apply her considerable skills to this new role as part of the School’s Leadership Team.
Rebecca received both her Master of Science degree and Post Baccalaureate in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Wisconsin. She has also earned bachelor and master degrees in Piano Performance and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Collaborative Piano and Coaching.
I am so grateful that Rebecca will have time over the coming weeks to collaborate with Anne Beisel, our current and retiring Director of Admissions to ensure the smoothest transition possible. I can think of no better way to seamlessly move Rebecca and the School’s admissions work into the future.
Please join me in congratulating Rebecca.
Thank you for being such an important part of our community.
