We are excited to announce that Meredith Fleming will now take the role of TIS Summer Camp Director/Capstone and Transportation Coordinator. Many of you have had the pleasure of getting to know Meredith as the Early Childhood Campus Receptionist and Assistant to Maria Abad. However, she possesses a wide range of experience in educational program management and transportation coordination that are perfect for her new position.
For two years, Meredith worked at an educational and recreational summer camp in Michoacán, Mexico, where she supervised programming and staff and coordinated all administrative and logistical functions. She also assisted with curriculum design for at-risk youth programs here in Portland. Both positions involved arranging international transportation from a remote location – experience that will serve her well as Capstone Coordinator!
Meredith also spent three years as the Manager of Luna’s Castle Hostel in Panama City, Panama, the city’s most popular backpacker hostel. While there, she recruited, hired, trained, and oversaw all Spanish and English-speaking staff. She also oversaw all financial, marketing, and partnership development functions.
Meredith holds a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Portland State University, and a Bachelor’s in Journalism, Spanish and Latin American Studies from the University of Oregon. She is fluent in Spanish and English.
Meredith will continue at the Early Childhood Campus this week, and officially start her new position after Winter Break. She will greatly miss the EC families and children, so please come to the Arthur Administration Building to say hi!
