Korin brings a wealth of experience to this position. She has more than ten years of experience in teaching and educational leadership at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills. Currently Associate Head and Chief Learning Office at Bloomfield Hills, Korin is responsible for all aspects of the School's academic programs and for overseeing six school leaders and hiring for mission. In past roles, she has taught high school history and served as Director of Student Exchange. Korin has worked as an instructional strategist, assessing instructional effectiveness and developing professional development programs for teachers. She has B.A., B.S. and M.A. degrees as well as an Ed.S. and a Ph.D.. Her Ph.D. dissertation explored the leadership of Sacred Heart Schools: "Wholehearted Leaders in Sacred Heart Schools: the Lived Experience of Women Leaders in Sacred Heart Schools". 
 
As we communicated in October, the Network Board undertook an extensive internal search to identify the potential candidates from within the Network. The response was overwhelmingly positive. We had many very qualified applicants. Every applicant was interviewed. The Board reviewed the candidates and chose to interview four finalists. The process was very affirming because it became obvious that we have an amazing number of incredibly talented people in the Network. We hope we will be able to tap into this talent to help us move the Network forward. 
 
We will plan a conference call of Korin and the Network Board with the Heads of School to begin the conversation with the Schools on the best ways to meet their needs. We look forward to working with you to realize the vision and Mission of the Network. 
 
Thank you for your support during this process. 
 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Beth Hicks
