The Mehlville School District’s longest-serving assistant superintendent is heading to the Pattonville School District to serve in a similar position.

The Pattonville Board of Education hired Mehlville Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Learning Tina Plummer March 22 as Pattonville’s new assistant superintendent of teaching and learning. She will begin her new position July 1.

Plummer has served as the assistant superintendent of curriculum, assessment and professional development in the Mehlville School District since 2012.

Most recently, she has headed up the district’s curriculum changes to improve test scores.

Plummer is the longest-serving assistant superintendent in Mehlville since Deputy Superintendent Brian Lane departed last year to lead the Brentwood School District.

Before heading to Mehlville, where she first served as a principal, Plummer previously worked as a principal in the Belton school district.

She was also an assistant principal in Belton and taught fourth and fifth grades in Belton, Springfield and Crystal City.  Before coming to Missouri, she taught in the Academy  School District in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Plummer holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary and early childhood education from Missouri State University and a master’s degree in educational administration from Missouri State University.

She also has a doctorate of education in teaching and leadership from the University of Kansas.

Then-Blades Elementary Principal Plummer was originally promoted at Mehlville by then-Superintendent Eric Knost, who said at the time, “Dr. Plummer has a wealth of knowledge regarding curriculum, assessment and professional development, and we are confident her expertise will help us to continue moving our district forward in these critical areas.”
