Tekmekia Gilchrist, Ed.S.

It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself,  Tekmekia Gilchrist, as the new Principal of New Manchester High  School. My passion for education and supporting the success of all  students has been shaped over the past 12 years as a business and marketing teacher, mentor, teacher leader, and assistant principal. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities possible. As I begin my first school year as Principal, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive impact in the lives of our students. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all students and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations and rigor, and engaging the community, it is our goal that all graduates will be college or career ready.
