Superintendent Mary Bourque

A Little About Superintendent Bourque:

Mary M. Bourque is a life-long educator committed to improving urban education. Ms. Bourque attended the Chelsea Public Schools: Prattville Elementary, Williams Middle, and Chelsea High School. She graduated from Salem State College with a Bachelor of Arts major in History, and dual-minors in Political Science, and Secondary Education.

Ms. Bourque received her Masters in Education from Boston University School of Education in Administration, Training, and Policy. She holds a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Administration from Boston University's School of Education. Her doctoral research centered upon the impact of student mobility in urban districts within Massachusetts and upon the consequences mobility has upon schools' and districts' performance accountability under the federal Title I Act, commonly known as No Child Left Behind. Her doctoral research has been the basis for reform to both State and Federal policy.

Ms. Bourque completed her student teaching at Chelsea High School, and began her teaching career as a middle school teacher in St. Peter's Elementary School, South Boston, MA. She returned to Chelsea teaching at the high school and later Chelsea's elementary schools. In 1998 Ms. Bourque was offered the opportunity to help open a Chelsea start-up school, the Clark Avenue Middle School, for approximately 750 grade five and grade six students. She served as assistant principal of the Clark Avenue School and principal. While serving in both positions she also led the district-wide curriculum alignment and formative assessment design work. Ms. Bourque accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of the Chelsea Public Schools in 2004 and was moved to Deputy Superintendent in 2008. On July 1, 2011 she became the Superintendent of the Chelsea Public Schools.
