Meet our Dean of Students

Kirsten Prunty

It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve as the Secondary Dean of Students at AUS. The past thirteen years I have had the privilege to grow and learn through my different roles as an educator which have included being a Dean of students, instructional coach, and secondary math teacher. Each experience has fostered my growth as an educator to better support and collaborate with students, teachers, and families. 

I look forward to working on a team that believes all students have the potential for greatness and it is our job as educators to cultivate that. At AUS, we are committed to providing a challenging and rigorous learning environment that fosters collaboration and inspires lifelong learning.

As an educational leader, I have a passion for empowering others to achieve their goals and the greatness they have within. I hope to foster a culture of collaboration, desire to be a lifelong learner, and willingness to appreciate the humanity of others. I will support a culture of trust and respect where staff feel valued and inspired to give students the opportunity to reach their potential. Working together we will create a community that staff, students, and families are proud to be a part of.
