Meredith Foote

Principal, Overbrook Educational Center
School District of Philadelphia
2018 Neubauer Fellow

“I became a Neubauer Fellow because I want to learn from the best principals in the city and engage in meaningful professional development that will help me improve student outcomes for all children at OEC.”

Meredith has served as the principal of Overbrook Educational Center since 2014. The school prepares students to honor diverse learners by providing excellent instruction for all students, including students who have an individualized education plan (IEP). During the 2015-2016 school year, the School District of Philadelphia recognized Overbrook Educational Center as a School Progress Report Peer Leader for K-8. Student proficiency on the PSSA’s math section doubled from 14% in 2015-2016 to 28% in 2017-2018. OEC is a recipient of multiple awards, including the Family-School Partnership, Philadelphia Home and School Make a Difference, and Literacy Alliance Sustainability awards. Meredith is grateful to lead the most delightful, kind, hardworking students in the city who are instructed by a positive, loving, committed staff.

 

Meredith has been an educator since 2006. Prior to becoming principal, Meredith served as a high school English teacher and chief innovation officer for Camden Street School in Newark, New Jersey. Meredith grew up in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
