Welcome to MAESP!

Service, Support and Advocacy for Principals

A Message from Beth Allshouse, President 2017

I encourage you to join us at MAESP as members, as advocates, and as influencers. There are rapid changes occurring in education right now. If we don’t speak up those changes will be made without our input. Who better to stand up and speak out than the educational leaders who are doing the job every day?    - Beth 

 MAESP President Beth Allshouse with Washington County's Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Boyd Michael and Dr. April Bishop.  Dr. Michael greeted the MAESP Executive Board at the September meeting sharing a message that highlighted 'four non-negotiables - act with urgency, hire/sustain excellent teachers, active leadership team and excellent curriculum'.  Thank you to both Dr. Michael and Dr. Bishop for sharing their time and leaders!
