About Our School


Dear Meredith Community,


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new principal at William M. Meredith. As a former teacher on the Meredith team, I am incredibly humbled at the opportunity to collaborate with you to lead our school into the future.


I am deeply committed to maintaining  and improving upon Meredith’s positive culture for learning. I look forward to working with our teachers to reinvigorate initiatives such as our teaching tolerance program, reader’s/writer’s workshop, as well as our newly adopted blended learning model. I am eager to continue many of our effective teaching practices as well as challenge ourselves to push our educational community forward.


We are a school that has had great successes but can always improve. It is with that growth mindset that we will strive to learn and improve our school culture on a daily basis. I am looking forward to cultivating positive relationships with all of you. Together, we will work purposefully to provide a positive and productive environment for our students.


I am privileged and honored to be able to roll up my sleeves alongside of you to engage in our meaningful work. Here is to another successful year at William M. Meredith!
