About the Head of School,

Meghan Barrios’ career in education began as an elementary and middle school teacher in both district and charter schools. After five years as a classroom teacher, Meghan became a mathematics coach which sparked her interest in school administration and leadership. She has 15 years of experience in education and has successfully completed both the NJ EXCEL and New Leaders Aspiring Principal school leadership programs. Meghan has earned a master’s degree in education from Seton Hall University and a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from King’s College. Prior to joining Hebrew Public, Meghan served as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction at a charter school in New Jersey.

On July 1, 2018, Meghan transitioned to the new Interim Head of School for the 2018-19 school year. She is well known to the Harlem community as a previous member of the leadership team during the 2016-17 school year. Meghan has a passion for creating learning environments where students are engaged, inspired, challenged, and successful. She is very much looking forward to working with the staff, students, and family members to continue the meaningful work of designing a truly wonderful school at Harlem Hebrew.
