Comments Off on Changes in Leadership – Congratulations, Ms. Harmeyer & Mrs. Clark!
Dear Mt. Bethel Community,
On May 17th, Faith Harmeyer was named the Principal of Nicholson Elementary effective June 1st! Faith started her career at Nicholson as a Speech and Language Pathologist after graduating and will return home to lead the school!
We KNOW that Faith’s passion for building relationships, her common sense, her wit and humor, and her commitment will be a gift to each of the Nicholson Stars! We are incredibly grateful for her service as a Speech and Language Pathologist and Administrator in her time (almost a decade) at Mt. Bethel.
Congratulations to the new principal of East Side Elementary, Maria Clark! At the CCSD School Board Meeting on June 21st, Maria was promoted to Principal at East Side Elementary effective July 1st. I know you will join me in sending her sentiments of gratitude and congratulations!
Without a doubt, Maria’s professionalism, expertise in curriculum and policy, ease in building relationships, and focus on doing what is best for kids and community will ensure that she SOARS as a principal!
This year will mark a year of change for the administration, but please know that I am confident our A-Team will not skip a beat – with many new people in different roles!
Jaime Davies has moved from her role of Support and Services Administrator to Assistant Principal. Jaime will ensure consistency, will continue to build relationships, has compassion for all kids and is an expert in intervention and bringing out the best in each student. We are grateful to have Jaime serve as an Assistant Principal, as she is a true asset to Mt. Bethel!
Kevin Johnson will serve as our newest member to the Mt. Bethel Administrative team. We are excited to welcome Kevin, ten-plus year veteran educator who has served in a variety of leadership roles, most recently at Brumby Elementary. He will bring curriculum knowledge, a strong background in special education, procedural knowledge, passion for kids and FUN! Kevin has served as Walton’s Varsity Pitching Coach for several years, and he is excited to join the Walton Cluster as an administrator here at Mt. Bethel.
We also want to welcome Sharon Dixson, Support and Services Administrator (SSA). She will share her time with Mt. Bethel and Walton and will be the contact for any questions or concerns regarding special education. Sharon is professional, polished, poised, has a vast knowledge of special education and intervention, and will be a welcome addition to the Mt. Bethel Team. While she has been off the clock, Mrs. Dixson has already been working at Mt. Bethel to transfer SSA responsibilities and to get to know our school and community.
We look forward to the 2018-19 school year, and are excited about this new leadership team as well as our theme for the year: TEAM MBES! If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out via email. Our TEAM will be together and back in the building on July 11th!
CONGRATULATIONS, FAITH HARMEYER, PRINCIPAL AT NICHOLSON ELEMENTARY & MARIA CLARK, PRINICPAL AT EAST SIDE ELEMENTARY!
