Dear Brookside Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Emily Adkins and I am very excited to be in my second year as the Principal of Brookside Middle School. I am looking forward to working with the entire staff at BMS to support our students with an enriching school experience.
Graduating from Mount Union College, Walsh University, and Ashland University, I have spent two years as a teacher in all content areas at the elementary level in Lorain and eleven years as a school counselor at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in Lakewood. In my first year in Sheffield, I served as the Assistant Principal at Brookside Intermediate School. I feel very honored to have expanded my role in education as a leader for your district.
Middle school is such an important transition for students, both academically and socially. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as Principal is to ensure that your children are attending school every day in a safe and caring environment with a challenging academic curriculum to successfully prepare them for their future.
Working together as a school and parent partnership, we can help your children to reach their full potential. Please do not ever hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Emily M. Adkins
Principal, Brookside Middle School
