A Day in the Life of a School Principal: Megan Baker ’12 6th Year

May 8, 2018

Neag School alumna Megan Baker ’12 6th Year, a graduate of the UConn Administrator Preparation Program (UCAPP), has served since 2015 as principal of Tourtellotte Memorial High School, a public high school in the Thompson (Conn.) school district with 251 students in Grades 9 to 12. Prior to that, Baker was curriculum director for pre-K to Grade 12 and part-time assistant principal at Tourtellotte. Baker is also a member of the Neag School Alumni Board. In this special photo essay, photographer Cat Boyce shadowed Baker earlier this spring in order to offer a glimpse into a typical day in the life of Baker and her role in principalship.
