Joshua Levy Named 2016 Maine’s NAESP Assistant Principal of the Year

Augusta, ME – The Maine Principals’ Association (MPA) is pleased to announce that Joshua Levy, Assistant Principal at Harriet Beecher Stowe School, has been named Maine’s NAESP Assistant Principal of the Year for 2016.  He will be honored by the MPA at its annual awards banquet at its Spring Conference on April 28, 2016.

Mr. Levy received the award based on his accomplishments as a strong educational leader.  He has been instrumental in developing a common culture throughout the school community.  He has also led the charge in coordinating two exchange programs with a sister school in Jinhua, China.  Because of his efforts over 38 fourth and fifth grade students from China have experienced life and education in coastal Maine.  His dedication to the profession exemplifies what we expect of all educational leaders in the state.

In announcing Mr. Levy’s selection as 2016 Maine’s NAESP Assistant Principal of the Year, MPA Executive Director Richard Durost noted, “Josh Levy is an innovative school leader as evidenced by his involvement in the school’s exchange program.  His dedication to students and staff at Harriet Beecher Stowe School is highly evident.”

Mr. Levy received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania in 1996, his Masters of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000, and his Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership from California State Polytechnic University in California in 2007.

He has served as the Assistant Principal at Harriet Beecher Stowe Elementary for the past 4 years.  Prior to this, Mr. Levy was a social studies teacher at Brunswick and Windham High Schools, as well as in Montclair, California.

Mr. Levy is a member of the Maine Principals’ Association and the National Association of Elementary School Principals.  He also serves on the Brunswick School Department Proficiency-Based Learning Steering Committee.

The Maine Principals’ Association is a professional association representing Maine’s K-12 educational leaders.  The Association dates its history back to 1921 and focuses its work on promoting the principal-ship, educational leadership, and promoting and administering interscholastic activities in grades 9-12.
