Aterra Lowe has been named an instructional specialist administrator for Springdale Public Schools.
"I would like to thank Dr. Cleveland, Dr. Smith, Mrs. Tisher and Mrs. Fink for giving me the opportunity to work in this role," Lowe said. "I'm excited to work alongside the C&I team and to continue to grow our staff and students in the district."
Lowe will transition from her role as assistant principal of Har-Ber High School to the Title II-funded curriculum and instruction position. She'll work alongside district instructional specialist administrator Cissy Lindley.
"These roles are designed to significantly improve student achievement in a targeted manner," said Dr. Jared Cleveland, Springdale Public Schools superintendent. "Ms. Lowe is uniquely skilled in this area and is looking forward to deeply supporting administrators and teachers in this much-needed mission."
Lowe is a native of West Memphis and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Middle Level Education from the University of Arkansas, she said.
Lowe taught English language arts for middle schoolers in Bentonville and Rogers earlier in her career. She's worked for Springdale Schools for five years and served the district as an instructional facilitator at Helen Tyson Middle School prior to working as the Har-Ber High School assistant principal the last three years.
