Kris Meyer as Principal of Ainsworth Elementary
We, the PTA and undersigned parents at Ainsworth Elementary, would like Kris Meyer to take on the role of principal at our school. Our school has thrived this year under the new leadership of Tammy O'Neill and Kris Meyer. We are confident that Kris will continue the great work that she and Tammy started, and we will support her in this transition.
In January 2014, the Ainsworth Site Council conducted a school-wide survey in preparation for the Principal Search Meeting with PPS. We learned that the parent community was looking for the following qualities in a new principal:
Good communicator, friendly, and accessible to parents, teachers, and students.
Motivated to maintain (or enhance) Specials (e.g., PE, Art, Music, & Technology).
Interest in pursuing new programs that will raise academic quality.
Ability to utilize/direct the energy of an enthusiastic parent community.
Motivated to maintain (or enhance) technology instruction.
Kris Meyer has proven during the 2014-2015 year that she possesses all of these qualities. She has shown the ability to lead the school with an equitable educational vision for all students and has balanced that with listening to the needs of the community. Kris will continue to be a dynamic leader and will engage students, parents, and teachers in a positive and thoughtful way.
