Hello My Name Is...
Assistant Principal Ms
My name is Mercedes Bauerkemper and this is my 15th year with EPISD. My experience has been in Mathematics and Administration. I began my career in 2002 at Charles Middle School as a teacher, a mathematics instructional coach and three and a half years as Assistant Principal. I arrived at MacArthur in the Spring of 2013, and my experience with the students, faculty and community have been heartwarming.
I believe that as educators, we must educate our students in academics, as well as in character to make them the leaders of tomorrow. I believe our responsibility is to inspire and motivate our students to reach their dreams, no matter the size; and help them to identify their talents so they can pursue their dreams with passion and perseverance. I am committed to our students and truly believe that “people (especially kids) don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
