Dear Mayfield Community,
I am incredibly excited to be coming home to the Mayfield City Schools family. I began my career here in 1995 as a social studies teacher and served as athletic director, the director of human resources, and the assistant superintendent before serving as Lakewood City Schools’ superintendent.
It is a great honor to follow Dr. Keith Kelly and carry on the excellence our community has come to expect from our district. My personal vision – the advancement of education for every student, every day – incorporates both Mayfield’s mission, “Every Student. Every Day,” and vision, “ A promise for learning, dignity, and respect for all.”
Education is a powerful tool, essential for the growth of young people, communities, states, nations, and the world. At Mayfield, we are developing good citizens through personalized education. Mayfield will continue to embrace diversity, collaboration, and the unique gifts and talents of each individual student.
The Mayfield family is strong. Our phenomenal staff led us through one of the most difficult school years to date with an enthusiasm that kept our students moving forward. I am excited to see us continue to thrive in our return to normalcy.
I am looking forward to once again experiencing #MayfieldTogether and I am proud of #MyChoiceMayfield.
Dr. Michael J. Barnes
