MEMS Welcomes our New 8th Grade Assistant Principal
I am very pleased to announce that Mrs. Deirdre Bova has been Board approved as our 8th Grade Assistant Principal and Supervisor of World Language. Mrs. Bova will start in early April. Since 2013 she has been the Supervisor of English, ESL, and Art at Colts Neck High School. From 2011-2013 Mrs. Bova was the K-12 Supervisor of English and ESL in the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District. She began her teaching career in West Windsor-Plainsboro where she was a middle school ELA teacher for 11 years.
Ms. Bova is extremely excited to return to the middle school environment and I am confident she will be a great addition to not only MEMS as a school but more importantly MERS community.
Congratulations to Mr. Reid
I extremely happy to congratulate Mr. Madoc Reid on being named our district's new K-8 Math Supervisor. Mr. Reid has been our 8th Grade Assistant Principal fo the last three years and prior to that he was a math teacher at MEMS for 10 years. While the entire MEMS staff is very sad to see Mr. Reid leave, we are very happy that he will still be working with our staff and students in his new position.
