JMCSS hosted its first day of administrator institute for the upcoming school year
JACKSON, TN (WNBJ) - The Jackson- Madison County School System conducted the first day of its administrator institute this morning at Liberty High School.
The two-day institute session is focusing on leadership strategies, operations, and academics.
The professional development day featured a panel of retired principals from Madison County.
One of the panelists, who now works for the Tennessee Department of Corrections, was very excited to be able to pass on her knowledge to other educators.
“We have an obligation to be a part of this profession. We should continue to nurture younger educators; we should be visible in our communities. This is about a better community, a better school system, so whatever we can do, we are never relieved of our duties as an educator,” said Virginia Stackens-Crump, the Superintendent of the Tennessee Dept. Of Corrections.
The administrator institute will continue Tuesday at 8 a.m. at the Jackson-Madison County Central Office.
Tuesday’s activities will focus on team building among the facility.
The principal at Denmark Elementary is glad to be able to start the school year on a positive note.
“I am really excited about this school year because last year as you know we navigated a pandemic. We will have a little sense of normalcy this year and that’s exciting for me. The institute is something I look forward to every year, but this year having three awesome dynamic principals come back and give us insight, words of wisdom, has been amazing,” said Dr. Kimberly Quin, the principal of Denmark Elementary.
School starts back for Jackson-Madison County School System on August 2nd.
