Kieker Retiring After Distinguished Career 
Deputy Superintendent Patti Kieker has announced her retirement after a distinguished 40 year career of service to RISD.

Ms. Kieker began her tenure with the district in 1975 as a special education teacher, her role for the next 14 years at the elementary and junior high levels. In 1989, she became assistant principal at Yale Elementary, and then principal of Dartmouth Elementary, where she served for five years until she was asked to lead Special Student Services in 1995. In 2000, she accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources.

With the arrival of former Superintendent Jim Nelson in 2004, Ms. Kieker was elevated to deputy superintendent, the district's number two position. Along the way, Ms. Kieker has served as part of countless campus, PTA, district, community, state and national committees, organizations and efforts. In all, Ms. Kieker has been a vital, consistent leader in the RISD community for the last 40 years.
