Morgan County Schools Assistant Superintendent Kristen Tuttle has resigned her position after two years to become an Assistant Principal at John Handley High School in Winchester, Va., effective June 30.

Tuttle said in a Tuesday morning e-mail that she has accepted and been approved for employment by Winchester Public Schools and that the Morgan County School Board would be taking action on her resignation at their meeting that took place last night.

Tuttle became Assistant Superintendent on July 1, 2015. She was previously Berkeley Springs High School Principal from August 2014 to July 2015 and served as Secondary Education and Career Technical Education Director from June, 2013 until August, 2014.

Tuttle was also an Assistant Principal at Berkeley Springs High School from July 2011 to June 2013 and taught business education at the school from 2006 until June 2011. She was a step-up administrator at the high school from August 2008 until June 2011 and served as substitute principal and high school special education coordinator. Prior to teaching, she operated her Cannery Row business for eight years.

As Berkeley Springs High School Assistant Principal, Tuttle implemented and administrated the Support for Personalized Learning program.

As high school business education teacher, Tuttle implemented the innovative High School of Business program. She also wrote and received successful major grants for Morgan County Schools and has been praised for her instructional leadership.

“I very much appreciate the various opportunities for administrative work and professional development and growth that Morgan County Schools has afforded me. They are skills that will benefit me for my entire career,” Tuttle said in a statement.

“The support from board members, administrators, employees, parents and the community over the past 12 years has been tremendous. My time in Morgan County Schools has meant so much and I will treasure it always. I will remain a staunch supporter of the school system and will remain a Morgan County resident. I wish Morgan County Schools nothing but the best moving forward,” Tuttle said.
