Your vestry is delighted to join the School community in welcoming a new Head—Mr. Peter Reinke, who succeeds Debbi David. Selected with enthusiasm by the School Board after a national search, Mr. Reinke comes to St. James’ with two kinds of credentials—as an educator and as a devoted Episcopalian.
He is an experienced teacher and administrator, having most recently served as Assistant Head of School at the Buckley School in Los Angeles, where he helped lead a project to revise their curriculum to incorporate 21st century theories of teaching and learning. Before coming to Buckley Mr. Reinke taught at the Head-Royce School in Oakland, CA. He holds an undergraduate degree from Brown University and a graduate degree from Teachers’ College of Columbia University.
Mr. Reinke is also a life-long Episcopalian, currently serving as Senior Warden and Lay Eucharistic Minister at the Church of the Advent in Los Angeles.
Peter will begin his service as Head on July 1, and, when you see him on our campus, please welcome him into the St. James’ family.
