Charlotte Harris has been at Milby High School since 2002, first as a teacher, later as a Title I coordinator, and now as an assistant principal. Principal Roy de la Garza jokes that she is just “waiting for him to die” so she can step into his position.
Other highlights from this week’s edition include:
• Breakthroughs—Learn how teacher Adeeb Barqawi is creating an atmosphere of “mutual growth” in his classes at Kashmere High School to improve students’—and his own—understanding of physics.
• Two contests for students—Go here to find out how one lucky child could win a Kindle for helping HISD rebrand one of its biggest initiatives, or here to learn how students in grades 6 through 12 at 74 campuses can weigh in on what their cafeteria serves every day (and possibly win a new laptop in the process).
