Dear King Families,
My name is Megan Truitt and I am excited to be joining the MLK Middle School staff as the new vice principal for the 7th grade class. I am honored to be a part of this dynamic learning community and to support your student in finding academic and personal success.
I come to King Middle School with several years of experience as a site administrator in the Novato Unified School District. Prior to becoming an administrator, I served as a middle school teacher for eight years, teaching science and AVID classes.  As a Berkeley resident, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to my home community.
I hope to provide each student with a middle school experience in which they feel valued, included, challenged and supported. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns or suggestions. I look forward to meeting you at the Welcome Fair on Monday, August 28th. Please come say hello! I look forward to partnering with you to make this year the very best for your student.
Megan Truitt
7th Grade Vice Principal
