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. Robin Bass is the assistant principal at Miller Elementary School.
Q: Why did you become an educator?
I became an educator because I wanted to be a positive role model for learners and to make an impact on their futures.
Q: What’s the best thing about being [an assistant] principal?
There are many good things about being an assistant principal. Being able to get to know students and build relationships with them is something I enjoy. Also, being a leader of leaders for our staff is a privilege for me. The staff helps in making me a better leader for them.
Q: What’s really special about your school?
Our school is special because we’re LaRue Miller Elementary! Our entire staff is wonderful, we reach out to not only the students and their families, but also to each other. We are a family, and as we like to say, we do things the Miller Way!
