Congratulations, Cameron Poole '05
The School District of Clayton announced last month the appointment of Cameron Poole '05 as Director of Equity and Inclusion beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. This new position will allow the District grow its work and further its commitment becoming an equitable and anti-racist community.
“Equity has always been the cornerstone of why I came into education,” Poole said. “I am ready to start building systems that will stand the test of time. It’s a process, but I am committed - to the students, community, staff - to bringing true equity to Clayton. I’ve done a lot of this type of work from a grassroots level and I will work diligently to put the correct systems and measures in place.”
Poole served as Assistant Principal at Rockwood Summit High School for the past two years where he helped lead orientation and transitioning programs as well as student equity groups. Poole spent the first six years of his career in education as a high school History teacher in both the Wright City R-II and Parkway School Districts. He is working towards his Doctorate in Educational Leadership and holds a Master of Educational Administration, a Master of Arts in Teaching and Education and a Bachelor of Science in History.
“Cameron is a leader who has the knowledge, passion and insight to truly move the District in developing the goals, strategies and metrics needed to become an anti-racist and diverse, equitable and inclusive learning community,” noted Superintendent Sean Doherty. “He will strengthen the collective efficacy of this important work. I am looking forward to working and learning together and having Cameron as part of our leadership team.”
