Dr. Joy J. Lea was recently appointed to serve as Superintendent of the White Pine Charter School. Dr. Lea comes to WPCS with more than 25 years of experience in education. She retired from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas after more than two decades there as principal, assistant principal, dean, and classroom teacher in both elementary and middle schools. She earned a BS in Education (BYU), MS in Curriculum and Instruction (UNLV), and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership (NSU). Dr. Lea was instrumental in building a strong sense of community, involvement, and loyalty in her schools, which increased attendance and academic performance, and inspired an intrinsic desire in both her staff and students to do better and be better. Her interests throughout her career centered on improving student learning and teacher impact on the learning. She attributes the track record of academic improvement and success in all her schools to the quality teachers in the classroom. She looks forward to bringing the skills and experience she gained over her long career in education to her new role as WPCS Superintendent.
