Scholastic Inc. has hired David Krishock to be the president of its Scholastic Book Fairs. Mr. Krishock, 46, took over the job last month. He succeeded David Yun, who retired after 13 years with the company.

Before joining Scholastic, Mr. Krishock served as the chief executive officer of Suntory Water, a water-bottling distribution company in Chicago.

Scholastic Book Fairs, a Scholastic subsidiary based in Lake Mary, Fla., helps schools provide students with educational books from more than 100 publishers. Scholastic Inc., is based in New York City.

Time magazine has named Mary Catherine Swanson America’s best teacher.

In the publication’s Sept. 17 issue, Ms. Swanson, 57, was recognized by the magazine’s education writers and editors for her efforts to raise the achievement of thousands of students across the country.

Ms. Swanson is the executive director of a San Diego-based program, Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, that seeks to raise the achievement of students who earn mostly C’s and D’s in their classes.

The program, which Ms. Swanson started in the 1980s when she was a high school English teacher in San Diego, is now used in more than 1,200 schools nationwide and serves more than 65,000 students.

The Rev. Albert J. DiUlio, 58, is learning what it’s like to oversee a big-city school district.

Father DiUlio, a Jesuit priest, started his first academic year last month as the president of the 103,000-student Roman Catholic schools of the Los Angeles Archdiocese.

He had served as the president of Xavier University in Cincinnati from 1986 to 1990 and the president of Marquette University in Milwaukee from 1990 to 1996. More recently, he helped set up a Catholic university in Ethiopia.
