Liz Freedman

Barnstable High School
U.S.: Massachusetts | NORTH AMERICA

Liz Freedman is in her thirteenth year as a principal and her first year as a principal at Barnstable High School in Barnstable, MA.

In her prior position, she was fortunate to work with a team to lead a comprehensive set of school improvement efforts that resulted in her prior school moving from Level 3 underperforming school to a Level 1 school. While there Liz helped spearhead the creation of the STEAM Innovation Program, a transdisciplinary, project-based initiative that integrates academic and career education.

She is excited about working with the students and staff at Barnstable High School and looks forward to what comes next.

She holds a masters in Counseling and Education Leadership and previously held positions as assistant principal, school adjustment counselor and English Language (EL) teacher.

She lives in Cape Cod with her husband and two children who take her breath away on a regular basis. She loves to travel and explore, read and more recently meditate daily.

She was part of the first Compassionate Systems Masters Practitioner Cohort and found what she was looking for in regards to inspiration to help her students, their families, her community and beyond connect with/to being part of making this world a kinder place. Being part of the Compassionate Systems community has impacted her profoundly both personally and professionally. While she feels she still has so much to learn, her work with Compassionate Systems has helped her feel a much deeper sense of gratitude and connection in all aspects of her life.
