Michael Baulier | Resident Principal, Mozart Elementary School
Michael Baulier graduated from Northeastern University in 2009 with a BA in English and an MA in Teaching. After graduation, Michael began his teaching career with Boston Public Schools as an English Language Arts (ELA) teacher at the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers. During his eight years at EMK, Michael taught grades nine through twelve in an inclusive setting and became a Fund For Teachers Fellow in 2013 and National Board Certified teacher in 2014. A highlight of his teaching career was in 2012 when he collaborated with 826 Boston, so his ninth grade students could publish Before This Placed Filled With Zombies, an anthology of short stories based on works of art from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
In addition to his regular teaching duties, Michael took on several leadership roles, including ELA Teacher Leader, Instructional Rounds Facilitator, and Instructional Leadership Team member. As a Principal Intern with the Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) program at the University of Massachusetts Boston from 2014 to 2016, Michael worked closely with the leadership team in order to improve family engagement, manage school partnerships, and lead grade level team planning and collaboration. His responsibilities included leading Parent Council meetings, planning family engagement events, maintaining communication with school partners (Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Emmanuel College), and facilitating grade level meetings and action steps. Michael also implemented Husky PAWS, the school’s first positive behavior intervention system in order to improve school culture and recognize individualized student growth. As a Lynch Leadership Academy Fellow, Michael looks forward to building upon his passion for school culture and family/community engagement and growing his capacity to become a change leader.
