The Northwest Local School District (NWLSD) welcomes Gina Sansone as the new assistant principal of Monfort Heights Elementary.

Sansone brings a wealth of knowledge to NWLSD with over 14 years of experience working in elementary education. Sansone has spent the last two years in the Lakota Local School District serving first as the assistant principal of Union Elementary and currently as the assistant principal for Hopewell Early Childhood School.  

Sansone, however; is no stranger to NWLSD. From 2005 to 2017, she taught kindergarten and second grade at Ann Weigel and Struble Elementary.

“I chose to apply for the assistant principal position at Monfort Heights Elementary because I wanted to contribute to the amazing culture and academic success that is already established. I reside in this community with my family,” said Sansone. “Knowing that I will positively influence students that are being educated among my own children is a unique blessing. Bringing my career back to Northwest Local Schools brings excitement and joy knowing that I am surrounded by the same professionals and community that have made me who I am today.” 

Sansone, who is a graduate of Xavier University and the College of Mount St. Joseph, has received several honors and awards including Evaluation of Student Growth Measure Most Effective Award, Parent Teacher Association Educator of the Year Award, as well as the Ohio eTPES Formal Observation Accomplished Award.    

The new role will commence on August 1, at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year and Sansone is eager to get started.

“I’m excited to work with the administrators and staff at Monfort Heights. I know that we are all dedicated to being instructional leaders that will collaborate with students, families, and staff to raise the academic success of every student while also taking into account their social and emotional needs,” said Sansone. “We will continue to partner with our stakeholders to ensure that our students are safe, engaged in academics and become exceptional learners and citizens.”
