Dina Chung, Principal
Welcome to 2018-2019 School Year! I am honored to be your child's Principal! I am a strong believer in Growth Mindset, Grit, and Restorative Practices. Ever since I was in second grade, I knew I wanted to be in education. I have been serving in education for almost 20 years: classroom teacher, Intervention teacher, Student Advisor, and now Principal. My two most important goals for this school year are student safety and academic success for all students. This is our second year implementation of "Leader in Me" where we will align our academics with making Wildly Important Goals and 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Student Leadership is and will be promoted throughout the year by providing opportunities such as Peace Pals and Student Lighthouse Team Members. Please know that my door is always open and I look forward to working with you to create a safe, loving, nurturing, rigorous learning environment for our students at Mount Pleasant STEAM Academy.I recognize that providing the best for our children is a village effort. I look forward to working together with you to make this year a momentous one!
