“We are delighted to welcome Ms. McMenomy to our leadership team here at East Jackson Middle School,” EJMS Principal Johnathan Harris said. “Ms. McMenomy has been an asset to our school system throughout her career, most recently serving in our district office as a math specialist. Ms. McMenomy will play an integral role in continuing to build on the momentum we have built here at EJMS.”

McMenomy moved to West Jackson Middle School in 2018 where she taught Algebra and Physical Science on a STEAM team and then served as the school’s instructional coach for three years and MTSS Coordinator for one year. Throughout her career, McMenomy has worked on various projects, including writing and reviewing testing questions, reviewing state standards for NAVVY, Pearson and DGC Ed Consultants. 

“I am truly honored to join the team at East Jackson Middle School as the new assistant principal. I have loved getting to know the East Side community better in my role as a math specialist, and have been inspired by the wonderful teachers and students at EJMS,” McMenomy said. “ I am excited to join their team as we strive to help students access their full potential in a fun and nurturing environment. Go Eagles."
