Jennifer Chatain is new Myers principal

Jennifer Chatain is the new principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School.


A veteran educational leader, Chatain has spent the majority of her 22-year career in Albany, Schenectady and Troy, in the classroom and in administrative leadership positions in public, parochial and charter schools.


After beginning as a building substitute at Albany School of Humanities (ASH), she was an elementary teacher in Troy for 3 years. She then served for five years as an elementary and middle-school teacher, and as a middle-school assistant principal, at two Albany charter schools – New Covenant and Albany Prep. She then took over as the principal of the St. Kateri Parish School in Schenectady and served in that role from 2009-14.


She led the Schenectady City School District’s Central Park School, serving students from kindergarten through grade 8, for two years before working for the 2016-17 school year as director of school improvement for Questar III BOCES (Rensselaer, Columbia and Greene counties).


Please join us in welcoming her to Myers and the City School District of Albany.
