WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools’ administration have selected Kyle Carter as the chief technology and analytics officer, pending school board approval.
Carter is a lifelong resident of Warsaw. He graduated from Warsaw Community High School in 2001 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in elementary education from Grace College in 2005. While at Grace, he earned the Outstanding Prospective Teacher Award. In 2009, he earned his Master of Science from IPFW in educational leadership.
Carter began his teaching career as a sixth grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary School in 2005. During this time, he became one of the first teachers in the district to implement a 1:1 classroom. He was also honored as a WCS teacher of the year nominee. In 2012, Carter shifted to the role of instructional math coach. In this role, he worked to support teachers throughout the district in grades K-12. Carter returned to Jefferson Elementary as the building principal in 2014, where he has served for the past seven years.
Carter and his wife, Jenna, have two children who attend Jefferson Elementary.
“I love the relationships I’ve built with students, staff, families and the community,” said Carter. “I have learned so much over the past 16 years. I cannot express how grateful I am to have served as the principal. The position of chief technology and analytics officer will allow me to further explore my passions in education: utilizing technology to accelerate learning and using data to drive instruction in the classroom. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the WCS technology team, district leadership, principals and teachers to further the WCS mission.”
Carter will represent the school system as a WCS cabinet member at the national, state and local levels. With this move, the search committee will now focus on the open position of principal for Jefferson Elementary.
