Dr. Lois F. Berlin

Interim Superintendent

Alexandria City Public Schools

I started work in the Alexandria City Public Schools as a preschool teacher the year I completed my GSEHD program and earned my master's degree. That was in 1980! The program prepared me well for my work with young children with special needs. Now I have returned after a 13-year separation from Alexandria and its good to be back where I spent 24 rich and fulfilling years of my career.
