Mrs. Vivian Bosworth is excited to join the Iwakuni community. She began her career in education following 10 years of active duty service in the U.S. Air Force. While serving in the Air Force Reserves for 15 years, she started teaching in Stone County, Mississippi, as an elementary/middle school math teacher. After several years, she was selected to develop and implement the math program at a seventh and eighth grade magnet school in Harrison County, Mississippi. After completing her Master’s of Education in Educational Leadership at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2004, she entered the arena of school administration, serving as an administrator with the Harrison County School District. After receiving her Ed.S. in Educational Administration in 2006, she lead two schools to National Blue Ribbon recognition.
In 2006, Ms. Bosworth was selected to train Mississippi school administrators using Robert Marzano’s meta-analysis of school leadership principles and approaches. Shortly after receiving Harrison County School District’s Administrator of the Year award in 2020, she retired from Mississippi public schools and accepted a position to teach in a small Inupiat village on the North Slope in Alaska’s Arctic Circle.
An amazing opportunity became available to join DoDEA in 2022 as the Assistant Principal of Naples Elementary School in Italy. That experience fostered a yearn for continuing the journey of educating and working with military families.
Mrs. Bosworth’s focus is creating and maintaining a positive school culture which allows students to excel in a welcoming educational climate. She is motivated to maximize student achievement and growth through high expectations and data driven instruction.
She will be joined by her husband, Charles, and their children, Luke, Samuel, and Harper. Mrs. Bosworth’s hobbies include camping, traveling, hiking, and puzzles. As a family that embraces diverse cultures, they look forward to joining M.C. Perry Primary School and the Japanese community.
