The North Penn School District (NPSD) Board of School Directors are pleased to share that they recently appointed Dr. Pamula Hart as NPSD Director of Curriculum and Equity.

Dr. Hart will replace Dr. D’Ana Waters who was appointed NPSD Assistant Superintendent earlier this year. Dr. Waters and Dr. Hart will both begin these new positions at North Penn in July.

Dr. Hart is currently the principal of Jenkintown Elementary School (Grades K-6) and its Child Care Program Director. Previously, Dr. Hart was a principal in the Lower Merion School District for nine years and in the Cheltenham School District for nine years as well.

Dr. Hart has a Masters in Education and Doctor of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Washington. She studied multicultural education under Dr. Geneva Gay, nationally and internally known for her work in multicultural education related to curriculum design, staff development, classroom instruction, and Dr. James Banks, widely known as the “Father of Multicultural Education.”

Understanding the progressive work that the district has already done with respect to curriculum and equity, Dr. Hart is excited to be part of dedicated professionals to continue the work so that every child in the district feels welcomed and experiences success.

“I am delighted to be joining the North Penn School community and continuing the important work of infusing the lens of equity and inclusion in all aspects of teaching and learning,” Dr. Hart said.

NPSD looks forward to welcoming Dr. Pamula Hart to the North Penn family this July.
