Lindbergh Schools is pleased to welcome Dr. Charity Schluter as the next principal of Crestwood Elementary School, effective July 1. The Lindbergh Schools Board of Education approved her hire on April 28.
Schluter is an assistant principal at Rockwood South Middle School, where she has served for two years. She began her career as an elementary school special education teacher and then a behavior specialist for students in grades Pre-K through 12, in the Fox C-6 School District.
Schluter then moved into a role as Area Coordinator for Special School District, where she oversaw special education staff members at five elementary schools and one middle school in the Rockwood School District, before moving into her current role at Rockwood South Middle School.
Schluter is a leader who values the academic and social emotional needs of children. She brings valuable experience from her background as a behavior specialist in providing support for students with diverse abilities and instructional needs.
“It is an honor to join the team and community at Crestwood Elementary, and I am looking forward to partnering with the teachers, staff and families at Crestwood to further the tradition of excellence that Crestwood Elementary is known for,” Dr. Schluter said.
Schluter earned a Doctorate of Education and a Masters in Educational Administration from Missouri Baptist University, and a Bachelor of Science from Washington University in St. Louis. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
Schluter will replace Crestwood Principal Dr. Jodi Oliver, who has accepted a position as principal of Heritage Intermediate School in the Wentzville School District.
