Letter from Meghan O'Connor Fisher, new Lyndale Principal
Thursday, July 2, 2020 12:10 PM

June 19, 2020

Dear Lyndale Families,

I am thrilled to serve as the Principal of Lyndale Community School. From what I have heard, Lyndale is a fantastic place to work, with an engaged community and vibrant culture. I believe families are the school’s partners in a child’s education and I look forward to meeting you all soon.

For the past six years I have worked at Seward Montessori. I’ve been the Assistant Principal for the last four years and was previously the Admin TOSA for two years. I started my career with Minneapolis Public Schools as an Instructional Leader. Prior to Minneapolis, I taught 4th and 5th grade for Chicago Public Schools and the Renton School District in Washington State.

As for me personally, I was raised in a suburb of Chicago, and I have lived in Minneapolis for the last eight years. My husband and I live in South Minneapolis and have two young boys and our oldest will start kindergarten this fall.

During this next year I have a lot to learn about the Lyndale community:  staff, students, families, the climate and culture of the school and much more. I plan to learn from all of you, as you are the experts on Lyndale.

I believe the 2020-21 school year will be great, and I will ensure all students feel welcome, safe, and able to engage in meaningful learning.
