Principal's Message

Hello Parents and Families of Charles Sumner Elementary:


My name is Meg Duffy and I am thrilled to join the staff at Charles Sumner as the new Principal.   I am a proud Invader having graduated from West Scranton High School and also a proud community member all throughout my childhood. I am very passionate about my position and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality elementary experience. As the parent of two children ages 16 and 19, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. I am a parent before I am a principal and welcome discussions to best serve your child while they are attending Charles Sumner.


Before joining Charles Sumner, I was the principal at Frances Willard for past five years. I taught in two separate districts, Stroudsburg and the Scranton School District, as an art educator for seventeen years. I have experience at all three levels-elementary, middle school and secondary. My academic background includes a Bachelors Degree in Art Education and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Cabrini College. I also have several credits in counseling to assist in my daily role as an administrator.  I currently am an adjunct professor for Wilkes University teaching a Literacy Leadership course and have also taught curricular courses for Marywood College.


I look forward to meeting all of you!

Thank you for the opportunity to be part of your childs educational journey.

Thank You,


Meg Duffy
