Tiede Named Executive Director of Special Services
Andrea Tiede has been named the Executive Director of Special Services. She currently serves as the principal of Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School. She has served in that position since 2009. Prior to that, she was an elementary special education teacher at Lee Elementary School. She has a B.S. in Elementary Education in 2002 and an M.A. in Special Education in 2005 from Kansas State University. She received her Licensure in Educational Administration in 2007 from Kansas State University.
“I am excited to accept this new position in our district,” states Tiede. “I appreciate the support of district leadership and our community. As a former special education teacher and as a building principal, I have a vested interest in supporting a strong special education program and creating successful opportunities for children. I believe all children deserve a high quality education, positive learning experiences, and adults who are devoted to their success. I will work diligently to support students, families, and district staff. I am grateful for my time at Theodore Roosevelt and know whomever the next principal is will be welcomed with open arms.”
“We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Andrea Tiede as the next Executive Director of Special Services for USD 383,” states Superintendent Dr. Marvin Wade. “Mrs. Tiede has demonstrated successful leadership as a special education teacher and building principal, and has been instrumental in district efforts involving professional training of staff, early childhood education, and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.”
“I am confident there will be a smooth transition in leadership from Dr. Debora Howser to Mrs. Tiede,” Wade said, “as both are respected professionals who have already demonstrated a strong commitment to the students, staff, families and communities of Manhattan-Ogden USD 383.”
Mrs. Tiede is scheduled for Board of Education approval at the June 5th Board meeting.
Tiede will begin her new position on July 1, 2019. She replaces Dr. Debora Howser. Howser is moving to Kansas City to work for the Kansas State School for the Blind.
