Marty Webb, Ed.D.
Executive Director Emerita

Marty Webb received her Ed.D. in private school leadership from The University of San Francisco in 1991. She holds a B.S. in special education from the University of Michigan and an M.Ed. in educational administration from Houston Baptist University. She has been a special education teacher, early childhood teacher, private tutor and a private school principal. From 1980-1997 she was principal of Corpus Christi Catholic School, which earned the United States Department of Education Blue Ribbon School Award. Marty also was honored as a distinguished principal by the National Society of Elementary School Principals.

In 1997, Marty founded The Monarch School and served as Head of School. In 2009 she also was appointed as Executive Director of the Monarch Institute. She retired from Monarch on July 1, 2012, and is serving as Executive Director Emerita. Marty’s energy and passion are directed toward completing the capital campaign and finishing an ambitious master plan for the Institute’s campus. Two more buildings await full funding in order for the Institute to grow. She invites anyone who shares her enthusiasm for helping Monarch to contact her!

Marty’s greatest professional joy is identifying, encouraging and mentoring others to step into positions of leadership at schools in which she is the Chief Learner. Like fellow Michigander Harry S. Firestone, she believes that “the growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.”  She believes that Monarch has been her greatest professional challenge and adventure, and she is grateful for all the educational settings and persons in her life who prepared her to undertake this remarkable endeavor.

Marty and her husband Eugene, a psychotherapist and author of seven books, are parents of four adult children and grandparents of 15 grandchildren and enjoy nothing more than being with them. In addition, she enjoys travel, needlework, camping, hiking, exercise and reading.
