All Saints’ Episcopal School Announces New Head of School

Workman 1 06092016All Saints’ Episcopal School’s Board of Trustees are pleased to announce that Mark Workman has been appointed as the new Head of School for the 2016-17 school year. Mr. Workman will officially begin his term July 1, 2016, when Head of School Marcia Carlyle completes her two year-long tenure. Mrs. Carlyle came to All Saints’ during a transitional time and has far exceeded the expectations of both the Board and faculty. She will be greatly missed by her peers as she officially retires June 30, 2016. Mr. Workman and Mrs. Carlyle have been working closely to ensure a seamless change of leadership.

Mr. Workman brings forty years of school experience as a teacher and consultant to All Saints’ – in the middle and high schools and university level. He is currently the middle school Language Arts teacher at ASES. While at All Saints’, Mr. Workman has helped enhance the already strong college pre-preparatory language arts program offered, become actively involved in the Garden Committee for “God’s Bounty” Garden & Outdoor Classroom, and helped implement a new Mission Statement and Portrait of a Graduate information to better convey the purpose and goals of the school. His long history as an educator embodies the tradition of excellence in academics the school has carried for close to 50 years in the Lakeway community.

“I am excited about the new challenges of helping All Saints’ to continue as the premier independent choice for education in the Lakeway area,” states Mr. Workman. “Since I’m already familiar with the students and faculty, I am ready to hit the ground running! I appreciate the Board of Trustees for allowing me to have this exciting opportunity.”

Mr. Workman graduated from the University of Tennessee with degrees in English and Curriculum and Instruction. He is married to Lee, has two adult children, Rebecca, and Margaret, two sons-in-law, Derek and Ben, and two grandchildren, Beckett and Andrew.  He and his wife are active members of First United Methodist Church in Morristown. “Mark has a passion for excellence in teaching and is committed to implementing 21st century curriculums,” states Board of Trustees President Paula Rugel-Gibson. “He is a compassionate educational leader of unquestionable integrity and someone who will lead All Saints’ into the next phase of our rich history of providing academic excellence for all our students.”
