Head of School

Vanessa Ullmann

​After almost a decade of living in Asia, where she was an administrator at an International School in Shanghai, Head of School Vanessa Ullmann offers a unique global perspective in education.

Since earning a Master’s Degree at Southern Methodist University, she has devoted her work and research efforts in developing programs that provide students with a well-balanced education. Vanessa is an academic leader who embraces the range of disciplines within a school community and encourages high standards of academic excellence. Raising the bar in education has been her professional priority for more than twenty years.

The Kessler School is richly filled with a diverse group of students from prekindergarten to Middle School. Parental involvement is highly valued at the school; which Vanessa recognizes as one of the key components contributing to the strength of the TKS community. 

As Head of School at The Kessler School, I am deeply committed to fostering an environment where every student can thrive. Our UNLIMITED educational experience ensures that we nurture each child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth. By embracing diversity, encouraging curiosity, and promoting a love for learning, we prepare our students to become confident, compassionate leaders who are ready to make a positive impact in their communities and the world.
