History teacher Katherine Holmes-Chuba will begin her tenure as the Upper School Dean of Faculty and Staff after working at Harvard-Westlake for over 30 years.

The Upper School Dean of Faculty and Staff represents the faculty and staff on the Faculty Academic Committee, coordinates meetings and is responsible for sending congratulatory gifts to faculty and staff.

Holmes-Chuba said she is most excited about being able to interact with both faculty and staff in her new job.

“I really look forward to getting to know the staff and people from other departments in a meaningful way and representing them on the Faculty and Administration Council,” Holmes-Chuba said.

She previously acted as the Self-Study Coordinator, where she organized an all-school evaluation.

Before serving as the Self-Study Coordinator, she was the History Department Head for 17 years, taking on the responsibilities of planning the curriculum and training new teachers.

In addition to her new position, Holmes-Chuba will continue to teach tenth grade World and Europe II and Advanced Placement Art History.
