ciss-principal-sMrs. Krista Nagy is to succeed Mrs. Louise Weber as the new Elementary Principal at Concordia International School Shanghai in the 2010 - 2011 school year.

Mrs. Nagy is currently the principal of Royal Redeemer Lutheran School outside of Cleveland, Ohio. She has been in school administration for 16 years, primarily in Lutheran schools in Missouri, Texas and Pennsylvania. Mrs. Nagy earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in education from Concordia University, River Forest, Illinois, and a Master of Science degree in Organizational Leadership from Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, in addition to post-graduate work in educational technology.

In service beyond her school communities, Mrs. Nagy has been active as an accreditation visiting team captain, district/regional conference planner/leader, conference speaker/presenter, and member of various professional and community organizations, including board membership for non-profit organisations.

Mrs. Nagy has written or spoken on a broad range of topics including brain-based learning, constructivism, multiple intelligences, and differentiation. She is a member of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), Lutheran Education Association (LEA), and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). Mrs. Nagy was recognized as Administrator of the Year for the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Eastern District and a University of Pittsburgh All-Star Educator.

"I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Krista Nagy has accepted the Concordia Board of Director’s offer to lead Concordia’s Elementary School, beginning from the 2010-2011 school year. Mrs. Nagy is a good fit for Concordia," said Dr. James Koerschen, Concordia Head of School. "I received much positive feedback after her visit that teachers and parents felt Mrs. Nagy would be great as Mrs. Weber"s successor. She demonstrated a great love for children and her Lord, and her passion for education was evident. Mrs. Nagy is well-versed in the needs of the 21st century learner and is a very experienced instructional leader."

Mrs. Weber, a founding faculty member of Concordia, is retiring from her role as Concordia elementary school principal following 12 years of service at Concordia and 41 years as an educator.
