Greetings Guggenheim Parents:
I am beyond thrilled now that I had the opportunity to begin my work as a Principal here at Guggenheim Elementary School
starting July 1st. I truly look forward to work with each and every student and family this upcoming school year. I am pleased to announce that we have a new Assistant Principal who will be working
here at Guggenheim and Sousa Elementary Schools this upcoming year. After an extensive search and interview process, we found the perfect person! Attached please find an introduction letter from Mrs.
Meg Sheehan. Wishing you and your family a wonderful summer!
Dear Guggenheim Elementary School HSA,
It is an honor to introduce myself to you in this letter and I am looking forward to meeting each of you in person this
upcoming coming year! Personally, as a PTA member in my home school district for the last 13 years, I understand the dedication, commitment and importance of a strong home/ school connection. As an
administrator, I am so grateful for the partnership that we will continue to build in order to ensure that our students are provided with an enriched, engaging and safe learning environment
throughout the year.
Who is Meg Sheehan? I am the proud mother of two amazing children. Amanda is a sophomore at North Carolina State University
and is currently studying abroad at Oxford in England. Bobby is a junior at Ward Melville High School who can be found most days in the cage as the goalie for the lacrosse team. My husband, Rob, has
been my amazing and supportive partner in life for the last 20 years and is the reason I am able to dedicate 100% of myself to our school community each day.
While it has been 20+ years, my life after college brought me just down the street to St. Francis Hospital as a Registered
Nurse until I had my children and decided to work per diem closer to home at Mather Hospital. Despite an amazing career as a Registered Nurse, I always found myself teaching whenever possible. So,
one class led to two and before I knew it, I was an educator in the Three Village School District where I taught kindergarten, first and fifth grades. I also served as the Head of School (principal)
at North Shore Montessori School which provided a Montessori education to students who ranged from ages 18 months through Kindergarten. While I loved my time in private education, I knew that I would
return to public education one day. This past year, I had the honor of becoming the principal of Columbus Avenue Early Childhood Learning Center in Freeport. It was a wonderful year filled with
amazing opportunities, community partnerships, and student growth. Having been an Early Childhood principal for the last nine years, I knew in my heart that it was time for me to graduate from
Kindergarten and pursue my desire to return to Elementary Education. I am beyond proud and excited to begin this journey back at Sousa and Guggenheim Elementary Schools alongside Dr. Meoli and Dr.
It is my philosophy that it takes a village to help students learn and grow. That it is our responsibility as parents and
educators to ensure that our children are educated in warm, nurturing and safe academic environments which motivate and inspire each of them to reach higher than they ever thought possible. I am
looking forward to the opportunity to partner with Dr. Meoli, Dr. Licato and the HSA to ensure that our students are provided with every opportunity to be their best self today, tomorrow and in the
