The Pennsbury Board of School Directors appointed Corinne Lyczkowski to be an Acting Assistant Principal for Pennsbury High School this week. The position opened up when the board chose Ms. Cherrissa Gibson to fill in for Lisa Becker as Acting Principal of PHS West.
Pennsbury Superintendent William Gretzula cordially acknowledged Lyczkowki Tuesday night. He decided it would be appropriate to read off some things the interview team said about her.
“They referred to Ms. Lyczkowski as enthusiastic, authentic, trusted, a problem solver,” Gretzula said. “They also admire her leadership skills. You lead by example Corinne. You have earned this and we’re really proud that the board has approved you this evening.”
While Lyczkowski has had the honor of holding multiple positions in the Pennsbury School District, she humbly accepted her new role.
“As a Pennsbury graduate, I’m overwhelmed with pride to be starting this new adventure,” Ms. Lyczkowski said before thanking people who helped her along the way. “This district has played a pivotal role in shaping who I am and I’m eager to give back to a place I owe so much. I’m so excited to begin this position at Pennsbury High School and I want to thank you so much for this opportunity.”
Ms. Lyczkowski has a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Gwynedd Mercy University, where she also earned her K-12 Principal’s certificate. She received her undergraduate B.S. degree in Secondary English Education from Millersville University.
As acting assistant principal, Lyczkowski must take on several new responsibilities. These include managing budgets, staff evaluations, and student discipline among many others.
Lyczkowski will assume her new position during the second semester of this academic school year when PHS West Principal Lisa Becker goes on leave.
