Carl Pauli, principal at Auburn High School, was approved as the new Director of Secondary Education at last night’s school board meeting. He will assume his new role on July 1, 2017.
“I am ready for this opportunity to serve MCPS in a new capacity,” said Pauli. “I am excited to take my experience beyond Auburn to help benefit all of our secondary schools.”
“Mr. Pauli has more than 20 years of experience as an administrator in secondary schools,” said Superintendent Mark Miear. “One of the many things that sets him apart is his fine arts background. MCPS has a long-standing tradition of excellence in this area and I believe Mr. Pauli will help continue those efforts.”
Pauli received a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech and a master’s degree from Radford University. He has worked in MCPS for the past 26 years, first as a teacher, then as an assistant principal and most recently as the principal at Auburn High for 16 years. Pauli’s fine arts background includes band experience from the third grade through college. He was a Marching Virginian and his son is currently a Marching Virginian.
