The contributions of Stephanie Lichtig, elementary school vice principal at UCC – Bruce Guadalupe Community School, extend over two decades in the education field.
Her advocacy for students to have quality educational experiences in school settings within urban and suburban venues is obvious, according to Laura Gutierrez, executive director at the United Community Center.
Lichtig has a passion to support students with disabilities, Gutierrez said.
“As a leader she skillfully weaves this passion by coaching teachers and administrators who transition into new career roles to guide students through their educational journey,” Gutierrez said.
In her current school administrative role, Lichtig coordinated various aspects of school management while maintaining a leadership presence related to teacher supervision, student discipline, and employee recruitment within her responsibilities.
“Her contributions have been a huge asset as she makes decisions grounded in credible research and years of experience. Exhibiting such stabilizing leadership, most notably in the past year’s tumultuous time, is a credit to her character, professionalism, and dedication,” Gutierrez said.
