Dear Myersville Elementary Families,

It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as your new Principal for the 2020-2021 school year!  I come to Myersville Elementary School with many experiences serving throughout Frederick County Public Schools.  I started my career inn 1995 at Myersville Elementary where I taught grades 4 and 5.  I then spent 13 years at Valley Elementary as a School Counselor.  I was a School Support Teacher at Middletown Primary for one year before being promoted to Lewistown Elementary.  I was an Assistant Principal there for two years and Principal for four years.

I truly believe in the promise of public education and am proud to serve in the system where I completed elementary, middle and high school.  When my husband and I began our family, we made the decision to move to Myersville because I knew I wanted our children to attend MYES.  I deeply loved the community and knew my sons would get a strong educational start.

I am honored to be at Myersville Elementary and will continue the strong tradition of learning to be the best we can be.  You play a critical role in your child's educational success and I look forward to partnering with you.  I know the upcoming school year will be more challienging than most as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please know you are always welcme to call (240-236-1900) or email me directly (dana.austin@fcps.org) if I can be of support to you and your child.  I look forward to meeting you in the near future!
