Principal Mest Says Goodbye to Northside on March 12

What’s Next for Principal Mest and Northside

Principal Mest’s last day at Northside is March 12. She will assume the role of Deputy Chief of Network 14, one of 17 Chicago Public Schools networks overseeing a set number of schools. Network 14 is made up of 20 schools, including Northside.

“So, I’m not going too far!” Principal Mest said. As the Deputy Chief, she will be able to “support schools with different instructional models, help them problem-solve, help them fulfill the vision of their school, and just be a thought partner that helps principals.”

On March 15, Ms. Patricia Stuber will take over Principal Mest’s role as the interim principal. Ms. Stuber was a resident principal at Northside two years ago. “She knows our school, she knows our culture, she knows our community,” said Principal Mest.
