Greetings PS 149 family. My name is Mr. McMichael, and I am the new Community School Director at PS 149. To those of you who I have already met, thank you for accepting me into your community. For those I have not met yet, I do look forward to meeting you and earning your trust. I come to PS 149 with 15+ years of social service experience across many populations including families experiencing homelessness and at risk of eviction, adults and children seeking mental health assistance, indigent hospital patients, teenagers seeking their first job and adults disconnected from the workforce,domestic violence survivors, and those living with an HIV/AIDS diagnosis.
In addition to ensuring that each student’s family is connected to the community resources that they need when they need it, I am also dedicated to the staff’s pursuit of a supportive and nurturing school environment capable of ensuring that every child realizes their own potential. As the adage goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ I am excited to be a part of this village and to partner with you to raise a community.
