Somerville School officials have named Jill Geiser new headmaster of the Healey School, the city said in a statement.
Geiser, currently an administrator in Lawrence, was selected by a principal search panel and hired by Superintendent Anthony Pierantozzi, who announced the decision Wednesday.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve in this leadership role at the Healey School," Geiser said. "The Healey community is an innovative one that constantly strives to provide the best education possible for its students, and I am excited about being a part of that endeavor."
Geiser brings six years of administrative experience and nine years of classroom work to her position.
"Ms. Geiser is an impressive leader with broad experience in many cultural settings," said School Committee chairman Paul Bockelman. "She brings a strong commitment to equity in education and is eager to be part of the Healey community as it continues to make impressive progress as a unified school."
