"Principal for a Day" at JC McGill Elementary School in Loganville,
Georgia. The program is a joint venture of the Gwinnett County Board of
Education and the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. Its objective is to provide
CEO-level business leaders a firsthand, authentic look at the operations of
today’s schools and the principals who lead them. Leaders observe the rewards,
challenges, and satisfaction that come with being the instructional and
managerial leader of a modern public school.
Mary shadowed MS. Crystal Collins, Principal of JC McGill EC, during her normal
and very busy schedule. Starting by greeting students and staff, they
moved to the media center for the morning television broadcast. Classroom
visits, a special Thanksgiving lunch with students and parents was a highlight
of the day.
"It builds confidence in our future to see happy, engaged students,"
said Hester. "The activities were challenging and many focused on science
and math. Ms. Collins is a very involved principal who knows all her students
and staff. Her level of commitment is remarkable."
