The Cleveland Heights–University Heights City School District has named Felisha Gould as its new assistant superintendent. Her term will begin Aug. 1. Gould succeeds Andrea Celico, the new superintendent of the Bedford City School District, who came to the CH-UH district as assistant superintendent in July 2013.
Gould comes to the position with extensive experience and leadership skills. She began her career as a high school biology teacher in Akron Public Schools before being promoted to middle school principal and then high school principal.
Gould has received a number of awards, including Akron Urban League Educator of the Year, Akron Alliance of Black School Educators Outstanding Administrator, Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators Middle School Principal of the Year, and the Ohio Alliance of Black School Educators Principal and Student Appreciation awards. Gould earned her B.A. in biology from Talladega College, and holds her master’s degrees in biology, secondary education and educational administration from the University of Akron.
“We are very lucky to have someone as talented and experienced as Mrs. Gould coming to our district,” Superintendent Talisa Dixon stated, “I believe she’ll make an invaluable addition to our Tiger Nation family and we are eager for her to get started.”
