WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Pine Cobble School in Williamstown has appointed Dr. Alana Harte, a longtime educator, head of school as of Jan. 1, 2024, according to a December announcement sent to the school community by its board of trustees.

Dr. Harte joined Pine Cobble in 2020 and served, most recently, as acting head of school, and prior to that, assistant head of school, dean of students, and reading specialist.

She earlier held various positions in other schools, including eleven years as a middle school English teacher, and previously served as an equity consultant and qualitative researcher. She received an EdD in Educational leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University, an MSEd in supervision and administration from Southern University and A&M College, and a BA in English language arts from Hunter College in New York City. 

In the board's announcement, Leticia Haynes, chair of the board of trustees, wrote of Dr. Harte:

"Her instructional expertise will be invaluable as we move Pine Cobble forward with a vision for greater curricular strength and deeper integration of the character pillars with values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. She will continue to enhance the school's traditions of engagement with nature, the arts, and sports and community building, while ensuring Pine Cobble provides outstanding academic and character education for all of our children."

"I am honored to have been selected as the next head of school at Pine Cobble School," Harte said. "I am drawn in particular to the school's commitment to strong academics, to community, and to upholding character pillars for its students, as well as its being an equitable and inclusive space. I'm looking forward to us connecting with the greater community meaningfully and frequently."
