Welcome to Waverly High School!

 

Welcome to Waverly High School! It is with great honor and humility that I address you as the new principal of Waverly High School. My name is Dr. Megan Myers and I am so excited to get started! I come to you with 10 years of experience in the classroom teaching a variety of science courses, and 4 years of administrative experience as a Dean of Students for 3 years and the Assistant Principal at WHS last year. Educationally, I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology, a Master's degree in Biology, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I spent last year getting to know students and staff members, and figuring out how things work in District #145. What I can tell you already is that Waverly High School is a special place. We take great pride in being a close knit school and community with the advantages and opportunities of a larger city.  At WHS, our students have many opportunities to be involved, connect to their school, and build relationships with staff and peers in a safe, supportive, and positive environment.    

We have so much to celebrate here at Waverly High School and I want to make sure to highlight those accomplishments while improving our standards moving forward. I fully believe the while we are doing so many great things for our students, there are places where we can grow and set our students up for even greater success when they leave our building. This leads me to introduce our new theme for the year that will serve as our focus for the time we have together. The 2019-2020 theme for Waverly High School will be "Raise the Bar." My building goal is to improve rigor in the classroom. We have started moving forward on this goal by re-evaluating course curriculum building-wide. We have also implemented an immediate academic intervention called After Hours that is held every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45-5:45. The purpose of this intervention is to provide an opportunity for students who have missing work a quiet place, free of distractions and other responsibilities, to complete their work. We have National Honor Society student tutors in place to offer supports as needed. I am looking forward to a year of incredible teaching and learning for administrators, teachers, and students alike. Let's go Vikings!

Dr. Megan Myers
