Macey Watermann

Applicant for Chance Elementary Principal

Mindset

I have a strong will to succeed, enjoy challenges and do not like to disappoint. Through my last seven years of experience I have had the opportunity to learn from my fellow teachers, coaches and administrators as well as take part in conferences and professional development days, which has given me the opportunity to learn.


I wanted to share my vision and ideas for what I would like to get accomplished and started within the first 90 days of being the Principal at Chance Elementary. With this being a new role for me in the district, I feel that it is important to start thinking about the position before the start date. There comes excitement and uneasiness when anyone embarks on anything new and I feel that a good plan of action helps all parties involved.

A little about Me

I graduated from Centralia High School in 2002. I obtained my bachelors degrees from UCM (Physical Education/Health (K-12) & Athletic Training) and then started teaching in the Raymore-Peculiar School District, and taught there for seven years before moving back to Centralia.


I met my husband, Jason, at Ray-Pec and we currently both teach in Centralia. We have two beautiful 14 month old baby girls (Rennyck and Roryck) and they are one of our main reasons for coming back to Centralia, so that they can grow up around family.


I obtained my Masters Degree from MU in Educational Leadership (K-12 Certification) and passed the Administrative Exam in 2013. I completed by Educational Specialists Degree (Central Office) from MU in the Spring of 2014.
