Interim Assistant Principal Announcement

Larkspur-Corte Madera School District


Dear LCMSD Community,

We are pleased to announce that Ms. Melanie Harris will be recommended to the Board of Trustees as the Interim Assistant Principal for Hall Middle (80%) and Neil Cummins (20%). The LCMSD leadership team, Hall Middle, and Neil Cummins interview team worked collaboratively to identify an outstanding leader who would be able to make an immediate impact in this key role. Dr. Geithman commented, “Ms. Harris not only knows our schools, she also brings a high level of expertise in the areas of coaching and mathematics.” Most recently, Ms. Harris served as an elementary teacher at Neil Cummins, has taught grades 1-7 throughout her career, and was an instructional coach in the State of Utah and nationally.  “I am excited and humbled about this new role in LCMSD.  We have a fabulous learning community in our district. I can’t wait to get to know this great community better, and begin working together for all our students.”  She will be an asset to our school district.

Hall Middle School Principal, Dr. Toni Brown, shared that Melanie Harris “Brings varied experience in middle and elementary settings and Hall is eager for her arrival! It is a true pleasure to have this opportunity to build leaders from within our district!” Neil Cummins Principal, Kyle Shaw, expressed his enthusiasm, “We are thrilled to have Ms. Harris in this new role to share her wealth of knowledge and experience spanning her time teaching and coaching in elementary and middle school. Ms. Harris has been an integral part of our Neil Cummins community and we are excited for her to connect and support more students and families throughout Neil Cummins and now at Hall Middle School.” 

Please help us in welcoming Melanie Harris in her new role as a co-leader of these incredible school communities! 

Dr. Brett Geithman
