Mark Terry is NAESP’s 2012-2013 president.
Mark Terry is the elected president of the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), which represents pre-K-8 educators in the United States, Canada, and overseas. NAESP is led by board members who are practicing principals and key instructional leaders, actively involved in shaping the long-term impact of school improvement efforts.
Terry, who is currently principal of Eubanks Intermediate School, has been an educator and school leader for over three decades, serving at all levels (elementary, middle, and high schools) as well as in rural, urban, and suburban districts with varying levels of socio-economic status.
Terry has also been a member of NAESP since 1993, serving on its Board of Directors since 2007. Terry has also been a representative in NAESP’s Delegate Assembly (1995-2010), and participated in NAESP’s Federal Relations Conference (2005-2012). A member of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) since 1983, Terry was honored as the TEPSAN of the Year (2011) and has served as that organization’s president (2005-2006) and on its executive committee (2001-present). Terry received the Missouri Association of Elementary School Principals (MAESP) Honoring Our Own Award, and this year, he chaired NAESP’s Membership Advisory Committee.
In December 2011, Terry traveled to Costanza, Dominican Republic, to build a school with the Lifetouch Memory Mission, further demonstrating his devotion to strengthening education for students everywhere.
“Our students deserve high-quality, well-funded accessible public education; the future of this nation depends on it,” Terry said. “It is an honor to work with NAESP to meet the growing needs of principals across the country as they work to improve the lives of children.”
