We believe the use of technology in education should be incorporated with the curricular
goals of the classroom, not focused on the technology itself. Educators integrate technology
into their curriculum to enhance their teaching methods and cultivate student creativity.

TESSERACT ANNOUNCES NEW HEAD OF SCHOOL
The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that Bruce Werber will serve as Tesseract’s Head of School beginning March 28, 2016.

For the last eight years, Mr. Werber has served as the Assistant Head of School for the prestigious and high-performing Brandeis School of San Francisco. He is responsible for the administration of the school, overseeing a teaching staff of 65 with an enrollment of 400 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. He is also Head of the Lower School, overseeing kindergarten through fifth grade education.

Mr. Werber has extensive educational and school leadership experience. He previously served as Head of the Lower School for Derby Academy in Hingham, Massachusetts; Director of the Lower School for the American School of Paris; Head of School for Shekou International School in Shekou, China; and Head of School for Khartoum American School in Khartoum, Sudan – among other posts.

His educational experience includes teaching Humanities at the Lahore American School in Lahore, Pakistan; and Humanities and Mathematics at the Japan International School in Tokyo, Japan.

The search committee was particularly influenced by Mr. Werber’s calm demeanor, deep administrative experience and commitment to the Tesseract mission. He has been through highs and lows, recessions and rapid growth, and has kept a steady hand on school finances, educator retention and student enrollment.

Mr. Werber was deeply impressed by the quality of the educational experience he observed during his visits to classrooms and his conversations with students of all levels. He has a clear-eyed understanding of the challenges that await him, and the confidence that comes from experience navigating through similar situations.

Mr. Werber received his BA in sociology and theology from Hanover College, and his Masters in Education through Teacher Corps at the University of Kentucky. He is also a trained EMT.
