Attendees and viewers of the district’s Board of Education meetings are seeing a new face on the dais – Dr. Michael McQuary, who began his first term as Sub-district C board representative on Dec. 9.
“We have major challenges, and I’m thrilled to now be part of the conversation at the dais, as well as in the community, meeting with parents, employees and staff,” McQuary said at his swearing-in ceremony. “Let’s do good things for the greater good; for our individual students as well as for our larger communities. I’m here to serve.”
Trustee McQuary brings a broad range of work and life experience to the Board. He has been a teacher at all levels, administrator, and education consultant at the state level. He has been president of his local teachers union and also served as a member of several administrative bargaining teams.
He was a Chapter President of Phi Delta Kappa, an international organization of professional educators, who conduct research and are interested in policy related to education at all levels, especially issues dealing with research-based school reform.
More recently, Dr. McQuary has assisted educational projects supporting students and local schools, such as the Pacific Beach Middle School "Garden to Café" Program, a bullying intervention program, a Peace Pole and a “zone of peace” dedication at the PB Middle School (2014) and PB Elementary School (2015).
