“Ms. McNulty’s familiarity and love for the Kratz community, combined with her commitment to equity at all levels, will build on the school’s strengths,” said Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride. “Her energy and passion for helping students, engaging families and supporting staff make her a strong leader for Kratz.”

During her career in Ritenour, she has earned many accolades, including Diamond Circle Teacher of the Year at Marvin (2009) and at Marion (2011), as well as being a 2011 Emerson Excellence in Education Award nominee. She also was a Missouri finalist in the 2013-2014 school year for the national Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science Teaching.

McNulty earned a master’s in special education from Webster University and a bachelor’s in elementary education from University of Missouri-St. Louis. She also earned an education specialist degree from Lindenwood University, where she currently is pursuing a doctorate in educational administration.
