Meadowlark Middle School Principal’s Note
As students move through the formative years of middle school it is our intent to teach our students about appropriate decision making. In working with our students, we empower them to make sound judgments both behaviorally and academically.
Meadowlark Middle School will focus on social, emotional and educational topics that will prepare them for success in their future. With this, comes responsibility and accountability. We ask for your support in helping us prepare your child for their successful tenure at Meadowlark Middle School.
The best thing about coming to work is having the opportunity to work with your child. As principal of Meadowlark Middle School, it is my belief that our staff will make a connection with our students in order to build success both academically and socially.
The majority of my career has been as a middle school educator. I began my career in Forsyth County teaching at Northwest Middle. Wanting to have a greater effect on students, I became an administrator in Stokes County as an assistant principal and eventually principal of West Stokes High School. I have since returned “home” to work with middle school which is where my heart is.
I encourage our staff to develop strong relationships with our students to build success in our teens. It is very important to me that students, parents and staff alike have a common interest, and that is seeing our students achieve to the best of their ability.
Please come and visit Meadowlark Middle, we welcome you.
