Ms. Cunningham is completing her first year as a DCSS principal ... pretty sweet time to start, eh? I met Trenton Arnold, her predecessor, two weeks before he was pulled to serve at Stone Mountain by Dr. Lewis. Just when I thought I found someone to develop a working relationship with he was gone! Enter Ms. Cunningham ...
Among all the progressive and positive things she does for the Sequoyah community, she also contributes occasionally to the blogosphere at her "First Class" blog. The role of principals as #1 communicator in their schools and communities is one of their most important roles in my opinion and we can all thank Ms. Cunningham for excelling in this area, too.
After reading her latest entry, I thought it was important to share it with our "Watch" blog readers because there is so much strain on our DCSS workforce right now and surely in the coming year. Let's take five minutes and thank our educators and all the folks who empower them to patrol what Sequoyah's principal calls a "bridge over trouble waters."
