BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - On January 1, 2013 Brunswick County Schools will welcome a new assistant superintendent/chief academic officer; although she is no stranger to the system.
Dr. Deanne Meadows has served students, families, and staff in Brunswick County for 13 years. She is highly qualified and ready for the next step in her advocacy for students and staff in Brunswick County.
"Dr. Meadows' appointment as assistant superintendent is the result of a rigorous national search process," stated Superintendent Edward Pruden. "Her experiences as teacher, principal, and in several key central office leadership positions have prepared her well for this new responsibility."
Meadows career includes 9 years as a mathematics teacher before beginning her administrative career in Brunswick County in 1999. She served as assistant principal for 4 years before being named principal at North Brunswick High School. Her district leadership includes service as director of secondary programs and executive director of 6-12 instruction and accountability services. She currently serves as executive director of human resources.
Those who work with Meadows characterize her as a smart, fair, and straight-shooting. She is an instructional leader who is not afraid to face new challenges. She strives for excellence in all aspects of her work.
Meadows states, "I went into administration to support teachers. Teachers and administrators are making drastic changes with the implementation of the Common Core and Essential Standards. I want to support their efforts and provide resources to not only respond to the change in curriculum but also influence changes in their instructional practices and assessments. Brunswick County is moving in a positive direction. I am excited to be part of a dynamic team to foster that momentum which will lead to growth in public education."
Meadows' appointment follows the retirement of Bob Grimes on December 31, 2012.
