Myers Corners Welcomes New Assistant Principal, John DeKams!

Dear Myers Community,

             I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share my excitement about joining the Myers community as the new Assistant Principal. As a new administrator within the Wappingers Central School District, I will dedicate my work to ensure that all students are provided with appropriate opportunities to flourish within the Myers community and to reach their full academic potential. 

            Prior to Myers, I’ve had the pleasure to work in various educational settings throughout New York. Most recently, I was a sixth grade Special Education teacher within for the New York City Department of Education. As an educator within the Department of Education’s District 4, I was considered a Model Teacher under the city-wide initiative called the Learning Partner’s Program. As part of the program, I collaborated with educators throughout New York City to share and develop best practices for students in all five boroughs.

            I am very excited to be joining the community at Myers! I look forward to working in collaboration with the staff at Myers to ensure that our school thrives within our evolving global society. If you have any questions during the 2016-2017 school year, please do not hesitate to contact me at 298-5260 Ext. 16006 or by email at 



Mr. John DeKams
