I am elated and proud to have been selected as the principal of Manley Career Academy High School. My educational trajectory began more than 25 years ago as a classroom teacher in North Carolina. My tenure at Lincoln Park High School served as a platform for my work in the area of literacy and instruction. My career has allowed me to serve in multiple capacities such as Area Reading Coach, Literacy Manager, Director of High School Curriculum and Instruction, Assistant Principal and Principal. Furthermore, I am proud to say that I am the parent of two CPS graduates. All students desire a safe and productive learning environment. My number one priority is to ensure that you experience learning opportunities that prepare you for college, career and life. I know first-hand what it takes for students to achieve at high levels. I am looking forward to building upon the great work already taking place here at Manley. In developing leaders for the 21st Century, I plan to engage our student body in deep learning, both in and outside of the classrooms of our school. I am passionate about teaching and learning and am committed to your success. During the course of the upcoming school year, I will share my vision for Manley Career Academy High School and create multiple opportunities for us to dialogue about the work necessary to reach our goals. I would also like to hear from you to determine how we can incorporate student voice as we move forward, together. I will challenge you with setting aggressive personal and academic goals to ensure you are prepared for the success that awaits you. Again, I am honored to be serving as your principal and I look forward to meeting with you in the near future. Best Regards, Melanie V. Beatty-Sevier/Principal
