Theysohn’s hiring marks a doubling down of HSS’ commitment to Career and Technical Education.
Bethel Park, Pa. – Harris School Solutions (HSS), the premier provider of technology solutions for K-12 districts, charter schools, and continuing education programs across North America, announced today the addition of experienced Career and Technical Education (CTE) Administrator Deborah Theysohn to its team.
Theysohn, who spent over 25 years working in the CTE space as a CTE instructor, program director, and principal, becomes HSS’ CTE Account Specialist. Her arrival at the company marks a deepening of HSS’ commitment to addressing the unique needs of the Career and Technical Education community through the company’s ClassMate CTE software.
That Theysohn chose HSS is far from a coincidence. In addition to the many roles she performed over the course of her tenure with Sullivan County BOCES in New York, she also served as the education leader for the program’s ClassMate implementation, designing policies and procedures for how her staff used the software in their daily operations.
“I’ve worked with ClassMate for years now,” Theysohn says. “I am excited to bring an educator’s and client’s perspective to the team as we work collaboratively to facilitate successful implementation practices and enhance client satisfaction.”
Adds Theysohn, “As an educational leader, I understand the competing priorities faced by school administrators. I look forward to sharing my experiences with other administrators to facilitate successful outcomes as they utilize ClassMate to meet strategic goals, increase efficiency, and manage student data, all while promoting CTE awareness.”
Kathy Ritch, who heads all initiatives related to ClassMate and HSS’ larger CTE strategy, praised Theysohn’s experience, saying, “She’s been devoted to CTE for years now and has the firsthand experience to know precisely what CTE professionals of all kinds, the real users of our software, need in order to do their work effectively and help their CTE students achieve success.”
“As someone who is very passionate about Career and Technical Education myself,” Ritch says, “I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish together for ClassMate and for our clients, the people throughout CTE who spend 100 percent of their energy helping students succeed.”
