Let’s hear it for Dr. Lindsa McIntyre, headmaster of the Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester, on being named the Bertram H. Holland High School Principal of the Year by the Massachusetts School Administrators’ Association!
The MSAA annually recognizes principals and headmasters who exhibit exceptional instructional leadership while fostering safe, inclusive, and welcoming learning environments. A graduate of the Boston Public Schools, “Ms. Mac” as she’s known to students, began her teaching career at the Burke in 1985 and returned to assume the leadership position in 2009.
“I am honored to receive the High School Principal of the Year Award from the MSAA,” said Dr. McIntyre. “When I became leader of the Burke, I understood it was important to motivate, encourage and inspire to generate will, not just for students but staff as well. As 21st century educators, we need to be able to combine our socio-cultural understandings alongside our cognitive ones in order to be effective in today’s classrooms.”
Way to go, Ms. Mac!
