As the new Byron-Bergen Elementary School principal beginning July 23, Meister says he looks forward to developing partnerships within the school culture and community through collaboration and communication with faculty, staff, parents, students, and community members.

The continued development in the areas of English Language Arts and mathematics are just a sampling of some of his goals as he enters into his new role.

Among his other goals, Meister said he will work to provide Byron-Bergen students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be highly successful at the secondary level.

“As the father of two elementary school students, I also recognize that elementary school is a place where children are to be encouraged to learn and explore in a safe and respectful setting,” he said.

Meister joins Byron-Bergen after serving the last four years as an assistant principal at Cosgrove Middle School and the 6 to 12 grade math coordinator for Spencerport Central School District.

Before working for Spencerport, Meister served as an assistant principal at Newark Middle School for two years. Outside of his administrative certifications, he is certified in Special Education, K-6 Elementary Education, and Pre-K-Adulthood Reading. During Meister’s time in the classroom, he has taught second, third, fourth and sixth grades.
