Midlothian ISD’s assistant principals participate in an Assistant Principal Academy. In the 2010-11 school year, there is one Academy session for the first semester and two sessions in the spring semester. One of the tasks in the first meeting was to answer three questions: (1) Why did you become an educator?, (2) What’s the best thing about being [an assistant] principal?, and (3) What’s really special about your school? Each Assistant Principal will be featured in a separate blog with the answers to the questions.
Mrs. Harriette Fowler, Midlothian High School (MHS) Registrar, participates in the Academy. She is the educational leader featured in this blog.
Q: Why did you become an educator?
I love being in school. I like sharing knowledge.
Q: What’s the best thing about being [an instructional leader]?
Being an instructional leader and seeing new ideas and plans develop. I enjoy seeing a project through and seeing results.
Q: What’s really special about your school?
MHS believes in the whole child. We try to determine each student’s strengths and develop those to make them successful. We work on weaknesses to improve the whole child.
