My name is Dave Meister and I am currently the superintendent of schools for Morrisonville Community Unit School District No. 1 in Morrisonville, Illinois. I began my tenure in this position on July 1, 2017.
I began my career in education as a teacher at Paris High School. I taught Contemporary Problems, United States History, European History, World History, and Psychology. I also coached boys basketball, boys baseball, track and girls softball. In 1998 I accepted my first administrative position as the principal of two elementary in schools here in Paris. In 2001 I was selected to serve as principal at Paris High School. On July 1, 2009 I was named the first Director for Paris High School. I have a passion for the use of technology to enhance learning and have authored several grants that have infused more than $300,000 into our local schools to enhance our infrastructure. From 2011 – 2015 I had the opportunity to work with the Paris Community, fellow administrators and staff, board members, architects, and constructions firms to build a new $40 million dollar high school campus for the city of Paris.
I am married to Marianne McIntosh Meister (27 years December, 2017) and we have two children: Jacob 21 and Molly 19. Outside of education and computers, my interests include running, golfing, traveling and following the Denver Broncos.
