Ms. Barone is known for surprising teachers who win awards, (see here for just one clip) so it was fun to surprise her with flowers and cheers when CMS Regional administration came to announce she'd been named CMS Central Region Principal of the Year!
The busy day included getting drenched, not just congratulations but in rain! But that perfectly sums up one of many reasons we love working for her: Ms Barone is not a principal who stays behind a desk! She's out there with us, rain or shine!
As Ms. Clark wrote about the below photo in a letter to our staff, "She was out in the middle of the monsoon Friday during bus dismissal and didn't come inside until every bus had picked up the students. Jackie, THANK YOU for all you do for these kids and our staff. "
A few great clips only capture a snippet of all the fun and learning she brings to us over the years. Keep watching for much, much more!
Celebrating Piedmont : a blog of Happy Happenings
"Celebrating Piedmont" logs only a small fraction of the learning magic the teachers of CMS' Piedmont Middle School, an IB World School. create daily. In that sense, it is authored by all the staff and students of Piedmont. It is curated by Ms. Gurthie who can be reached at the icons above. She'll be happy to brag about Piedmont's teachers and students any chance she gets! Please note this blog has only just begun and we have so much to show off! Come back again soon!
