When I was an elementary principal, I worked above & beyond to bring an acceptable rated school to one of exemplary status. I set goals, hired the best faculty, & always strived to do my best. In my 8 years of tenure at the school, it became the number 1 school in the county with many awards! Parents wanted their children in the school, teachers wanted to teach at the school, & student learning was exceptional. I was happy when I retired that I had left the school a better place for children to learn!
