Maine’s Positive PRINCIPAL Story of the Day ~ Kerri Wyman, Asa C Adams Elementary in Orono ~
In honor of National Principals’ Month, every day in October we are going to be honoring principals. Today we are honoring Kerri Wyman.
Kerri Wyman, middle school and high school science teacher for eight years, principal and assistant principal in RSU 64 for eight years, and currently I am the principal of Asa C. Adams Elementary School in Orono for the past two years. I serve on the MPA legislative committee, and I am a doctoral candidate at UMaine working on my doctorate in educational leadership. My dissertation research is focused on the development of self efficacy for female principals within the constructs of our patriarchal society.
“One of the best parts of being a principal is the opportunity to connect with so many different people, big or small each day. Sharing the fun days, the hard days, the joyful days and simply taking the time to be present and connect with my school community are the things that fill me up. I feel lucky and privileged to serve the students, staff, and families in my district everyday.”
