About

Hello,

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.

  1. Thank you for your workshop yesterday. My eyes have been opened to many new and exciting tools. I will play with them this weekend. I was wondering if you could give me the URL for the YouTube video of the guy drawing the way we need to learn in the 21st century?… The one with the turtles…sorry I thought I could pull it up but I am blocked at work.
    Again, many thanks for sharing.
    Gina
