The SMMUSD Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Suzanne Webb as the new director of human resources at its April 16, regular meeting.
Webb has served as principal of Lincoln Middle School since 2008. As principal, she provided oversight and guided the overall vision and mission of the school by working with stakeholders in creating and implementing the Single Plan for Student Achievement. She has been instrumental in the planning and facilitation of professional development and leadership over a staff of more than 100, while managing a 3 million budget for the school.
Prior to her position as principal, Webb served as assistant principal of Malibu High School from 2004-2008; education services program facilitator from 2002-2004 and math teacher at Lincoln Middle School from 1996-2002. Prior to joining SMMUSD, she was a math and computer teacher in the Beverly Hills USD from 1994-1996. Webb was selected as teacher of the year by her colleagues in 2002 at Lincoln Middle School.
“I am honored to have been selected as the new director of human resources. I look forward to being a part of our district’s leadership team and helping our employees best meet the needs of all students,” Webb said in a statement. “I cherish the last seven years that I served as principal of Lincoln Middle School. While I will miss the daily interactions with students and the Lincoln community, I won’t be far. I will be in close contact with the school and supporting them in every way possible.”
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in math and Master of Arts in education leadership and policy from Cal State Northridge and a doctorate of education in educational leadership, administration and policy from Pepperdine University. Dr. Webb completed the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Personnel Academy in March 2015.
Webb has received several PTSA awards including a Honorary Service Award from the Malibu PTA and the Lincoln PTSA and a continuing service award from Lincoln PTSA. She is actively involved in the Pepperdine Alumni Association and mentors current doctoral students pursuing their degrees in educational leadership, administration, and policy.
“Dr. Webb will be a valuable addition to our district leadership team,” Superintendent Sandra Lyon said. “I would like to congratulate her on her new position.”
