Power was appointed at the conclusion of Tuesday night's school board meeting and will officially assume her new duties on July 1.She will fill the vacancy left by Dr. Georg T. Kidd, who stepped down in February for health reasons.
"We're glad to have Donna Power on board," Superintendent of Schools Dr. David J. Holleran said at the meeting, which was held in the Mathews High School library.
...
Power's "instructional knowledge and love of children" will now benefit the entire school division, he said.
In addition, Holleran said that he expects Power to play a major role in some of the regional initiatives and programs of which Mathews is a part."I can see her becoming a leader in some of these programs," he said.
Her first task as assistant superintendent will be to organize a search committee to find a new elementary school principal.
...
As in the case of Power, Holleran said that the school division will first look among its current staff for someone qualified to fill this vacancy.
...
"I can't begin to describe the honor" of being selected to the division's number-two administrative spot, Power said.
For the past 10 years Power said she has served the students at Lee-Jackson, "and I look forward to serving all the kids (of Mathews) for a long time to come."
Power taught special education at Thomas Hunter Middle School for one year before succeeding Aaron Wilburn as principal in 1998.

Prior to coming to Mathews County, Power served as principal at three private schools in Pennsylvania and New York from 1985 to 1997.She began her teaching career in 1973 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Staten Island, N.Y.
Power earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education from Virginia Intermont College, received a master's in special education from St. John's University and conducted post-graduate work at Fordham University and the University of Virginia.

L-J Principal Finalist For Distinguished Principal Award
gazettejournal.net, 5 April 2006 [cached]
In the parlance of another March event, Donna Power has made it to the Final Four.
Power, Lee-Jackson Elementary School's principal since 1998, is one of four finalists for the title of Virginia's 2006 National Distinguished Principal.The announcement was made in the March issue of The Virginia Principal, the monthly publication of the Virginia Association of Elementary School Principals.A decision on the winner will be announced in May.
The Lee-Jackson principal initially learned of the nomination in a February letter, but assumed that she was one of maybe a dozen finalists.When Power opened her copy of The Virginia Principal and saw that there were only four, she was pleasantly surprised.
Asked why she thought she was selected for this honor, Power didn't hesitate a minute."Because I truly believe that every day is sunshine and that children should joyfully skip into school," she said.
Power "firmly believes that happy children learn well and (she) strives to create a happy and safe environment that children love to come to," according to her Virginia Principal profile.
Creating that happy and safe environment seems to have paid big dividends in terms of academic achievement.For four years running, Lee-Jackson Elementary School has been fully accredited through the state's Standards of Learning, and the last two years the school has exceeded the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) benchmarks established by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
Power has reached out to her students' parents to gain their trust and come up with collaborative solutions."I really work hard to problem solve with parents," she said.
She pointed with pride at the success of the KIDS program that she instituted at Lee-Jackson.KIDS, which stands for Kids In Dynamic Study, provides small-group instruction for youngsters who have a hard time learning in a traditional classroom setting.Power has also headed up the Instructional Support Team initiative at her school, with teachers trained to provide support to other classroom teachers in their effort to help struggling learners.
The Distinguished Principal nomination isn't the first statewide attention that Power has received.Twice, she has been asked to be a presenter at the annual conference of Virginia school superintendents.
Fostering a sense of community in the school, Power has initiated an inclusion program for special education students, with every student joining their regular education peers for at least part of the day, regardless of disability.
That sense of community goes beyond the school grounds.Power has forged partnerships with such community groups as the Mathews Memorial Library, Bay School Cultural Arts Center, Mathews Master Gardeners, Kiwanis Club of Middlesex, and BayLands Federal Credit Union, who sponsor the school's Extra Effort Awards.
Power has also been encouraging her faculty members to advance in their careers, leading two teachers to pursue their master's degrees in administration and supervision, and three teacher assistants to return to school to become teachers.
She's been taking her own advice on this count, going back to pursue her doctorate.Power will take her residency this summer in Blacksburg and hopes to have her PhD from Virginia Tech by May 2007.
Originally from Brooklyn and Staten Island, Power received her bachelor's degree in elementary education from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol; her master's in special education from St. John's University in New York; and her certification in administration and supervision from Fordham University, also in New York.She also did advanced studies at the University of Virginia.
Before coming to Mathews, she was a teacher and then principal at Our Lady of Mount Carmel/St.Benedicta School on Staten Island; principal at St. Joseph School in Dallastown, Pa., and principal at St. Anne School in Lancaster, Pa.
She taught fifth grade special education at Thomas Hunter Middle School for one year before replacing Aaron Wilburn as Lee-Jackson Elementary School principal in 1998.She lives in the Glebe, where she is a partner in Two Left Hands Farm, raising German warmblood (Trakehner) and thoroughbred horses.
