Kristi Ward, Principal

I have worked in MPS since 1997 as both a teacher and an administrator. Beginning in Oct. 2010, I have served as education administrator at MPS’ Metro SJ – St Joseph’s Home for Children residential, day treatment and shelter programs. Prior to that, I was a district program facilitator for citywide behavior programs for two years, during which time I also served as an extended school year coordinator for part of one year. My MPS teaching career included five years as a teacher on special assignment and six years as a special program for elementary needs (SPEN) teacher at Whittier.
 
I received my bachelor’s degree in special education from St. Cloud State University. I earned both a master’s degree in educational leadership and policy and

an educational specialist degree at the University of St. Thomas.
 
I am extremely excited for the opportunity to serve as your principal. I look forward to joining your diverse learning community where we will continue to build a strong academic program in a nurturing and welcoming environment. I am reminded of a quote from Wilma Rudolph: ‘Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.’ I am quickly learning how great the Bryn Mawr community is and I am honored to have been chosen as your next leader.
