Webb names new assistant head of schools
After a national search, last week The Webb Schools named alumni Michael Hoe as assistant head of schools effective July 2023.
Hoe will oversee daily operations, including academics, faculty, residential life, student advising, student activities, athletics, and student discipline at The Webb Schools, which encompass Webb School of California, Vivian Webb School, and the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology.
Hoe graduated from Webb in 2004 and earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from Brown University. He later earned his Master of Education from Harvard University. Over the last 15 years, he served in multiple roles at Noble and Greenough School in Massachusetts.
He returned to Webb in 2019 and served as director of studies. In addition to administrative duties, Hoe teaches in Webb’s science department and has held secondary roles in residential life and the student advising program. He is a fellow in the National Association of Independent Schools’ aspiring school heads program.
Theresa Smith, Webb’s seventh head of schools said Hoe is a “talented educator and administrator whose deep affection for the Webb community is palpable.”
“I’m really honored to be selected,” Hoe said in a statement. “I hope to continue to make Webb proud.”
