Molly Cinnamon, principal at Glencoe’s South School since 2009, has resigned effective the end of the school year.
“She tendered her letter of resignation, for personal and family reasons,” Superintendent Cathlene Crawford said Tuesday. “It just worked best in her home. We accepted her resignation and we’ll just look for her replacement.”
Crawford sent a recent e-mail about Cinnamon to South School parents. It did not indicate whether the five-year district employee had a new job, but indicated she would be open to a new situation: “We have received notice from South School Principal, Dr. Cinnamon, of her intention to resign at the close of the 2011-2012 school year. Dr. Cinnamon will be pursuing new options and opportunities.”
The e-mail expressed appreciation for Cinnamon’s service, and stated that the process of replacing her would begin this month.
Cinnamon was promoted to principal of the K-2 school at 266 Linden Ave. when former principal Catherine Wang became District 35’s head of curriculum in July of 2009. Cinnamon had been Central School’s assistant principal since 2006. Prior to that, she had worked as a teacher for 14 years in the Winnetka public schools.
School Board President Eddie Chez had no comment on the resignation. Cinnamon did not return telephone calls prior to Glencoe News’ print deadline.
