Center of Responsive Education leadership announcement
Tina Woods will be recommended to the Columbia Board of Education to become the director at the Center of Responsive Education for the 2019‐20 school year.
The Center of Responsive Education (CORE) houses the Quest and Connections programs, as well as districtwide staff, including autism support, community skills support, districtwide behavior support, and other special programs.
Woods will take the reins from Connie Divine, who announced her retirement earlier this school year.
Woods is currently in a school administrator role as an administrative assistant at Oakland Middle School. Prior to her current leadership position, she spent 10 years as a learning specialist working with multiple grade levels in Columbia Public Schools. She has an undergraduate degree in multidisciplinary studies and a master’s degree in art of teaching from Columbia College. She also holds an education specialist in educational administrative leadership and is completing a doctorate in educational administrative leadership from St. Louis University.
“Ms. Woods will be a great addition to the team at CORE. She will provide continued support for our students and staff as they work together to help all of our students be successful through strategies, interventions and support systems,” said Superintendent Peter Stiepleman.
