Marositz Named Associate Superintendent for Teaching and Learning


Stephen Marositz was named associate superintendent of teaching and learning, the archdiocese’s Superintendent of Schools office announced.

Marositz joined the superintendent’s office as director last August. His promotion recognized his leadership in the Office of Teaching and Learning focused on the needs of each student in the formation and development of academic programs. His skill set and work ethic have strengthened the devotion to academic excellence of archdiocesan schools.

“Stephen maintained a laser focus on the academic needs of students,” said Michael J. Deegan, superintendent of schools in the archdiocese. “Each decision he has made has the thoughts of learners in mind. He keeps himself abreast of best practices to maximize his ability, providing thoughtful support to the adults in each building, knowing their preparation directly impacts student achievement and growth. 

“Stephen has exemplified this through the resources curated, conversations had, and workshops led with principals and teachers in all our regions.” 

In his new role, Marositz will apply professional development opportunities for teachers and leaders by visiting Catholic schools to observe modern teaching and learning relationships. He will work to improve teacher and coaching workshops to create cohesion across all curricular resources and materials so teachers and leaders are supported and prepared to meet the needs of each student. 

Marositz earned a bachelor’s degree in childhood and special education from New York University, Manhattan; and a master’s in sociology and education from Teachers College at Columbia University, Manhattan. He is currently working on his doctorate at Ball State University Teachers College, Muncie, Ind.
