Message of the President Lopes Clemente
Allow me to welcome you to the Middle School Principals’ Association website. We are currently in our 62nd year of serving and supporting intermediate level principals in New York City, and I am honored to be the new president of such an esteemed organization. I am especially excited to work with my fellow principals whose professional objectives are to educate and develop the middle school child, support and promote middle school teachers, and whose intentions are to create, develop, and sustain viable, effective middle level school communities that are exemplary and innovative. Our monthly meetings include professional development for our members, as well as opportunities for discourse concerning pedagogy, assessment, and enrichment that directly affects adolescents across the five boroughs. Please be sure to explore our website and take advantage of the resources we offer, including our Leadership Conference at the Brooklyn Marriott and our retreat at Club Getaway in Kent New York—you will find both to be edifying, exciting venues for development and interaction. I look forward to serving the middle school principals of New York City in our myriad venues, and I hope to see you all at our events!
