“From the moment I was introduced to All Saints, I felt a connection and a sense of kinship. The mission, vision, and values of the community are representative of what I hold most dear as an educator and parent. I immediately knew that I wanted to be a part of this special school’s next chapter,” Beck said in a statement.
“As the Head of School, I will enthusiastically lead alongside All Saints’ talented educators and students, while engaging with families and the greater Hoboken community to build from the already incredible foundation that is here. All Saints has an amazing future ahead.”
The appointment was announced by the school’s board of trustees in January and Beck assumed the role for the first time on July 1st. She succeeds Tom Trigg, who was interim Head of School for the 2022-23 school year.
Beck most recently served as the Berkeley Carroll School in Park Slope, Brooklyn where she served as Director of Lower School. She began her career in teaching in the Connecticut public schools in West Hartford and Greenwich.
After a decade of teaching and completing a further Sixth-Year Program in Educational Leadership, Beck began her 20 years as an administrator in some of the nation’s top public school districts in Connecticut and independent schools in Washington, D.C. and New York City.
She has served communities as director/principal, as well as assistant superintendent.
“Kimberly has been lauded as a tireless advocate for students, families, and teachers, a systems thinker and a believer in best practice. However, it was her warmth and passion for education that came through clearly as we got to know her during the search and selection process,” added All Saints Board Chair Divya Menon.
“Those who have met with Kimberly have remarked on her empathy, her approachability, and the clear alignment between her values and the values and mission of the school. Kimberly is stepping into the role of Head of All Saints during a period of enormous opportunity to lead our community as we embark upon a period of renewal and growth.”
