Oxer named Cos Cob School assistant principal

Superintendent of Schools William McKersie has announced the appointment of Barbara Brennan Oxer as the Assistant Principal for Cos Cob School.

Ms. Oxer is currently a fourth grade teacher at Old Greenwich School and her appointment as assistant principal will be effective once a new classroom teacher is selected for Ms. Oxer’s fourth grade class.

“Ms. Oxer has been an educator for 10 years, with 20 years of professional experience in the private sector,” Dr. McKersie said. “She is a highly regarded teacher by peers, students and parents. Witness her selection last year as a Distinguished Teacher. She has proven management skills from her career in business, and has made important contributions to her school and the District through curriculum writing, professional learning, and data-driven improvement planning.”

Cos Cob School Principal Kim Beck added, “Barbara impressed us with her child-centered, highly professional approach to teaching and learning and engendered a great deal of confidence in her decision-making abilities. As a long-time Cos Cob resident and former Cos Cob School parent, Barbara knows the school and community very well. I am excited to begin working with Barbara and am confident that she will be a valuable addition to our school community.”

After more than twenty years working in the private sector, as a Certified Public Accountant, Ms. Oxer began her career as a teacher at Old Greenwich School in 2002. She has taught kindergarten, first and fifth grades and is currently a fourth grade teacher. She is a peer-selected member of the Superintendent’s Teacher Advisory Committee and a member of the Old Greenwich School Improvement and Data Teams.

She is also serving her second term as the teacher liaison member of the Old Greenwich School PTA, and is involved in the District-wide development of Transdisciplinary Units and has been an active participant in curriculum writing and school improvement planning and led professional learning workshops for colleagues. She was selected as a Distinguished Teacher in 2012 .
