Michelle Doshier of Hunt Elementary School has earned the Arkansas Master Principal designation.
"I feel so grateful and honored," Doshier said. "I have the best staff, who were eager to implement many of the strategies I learned in order to improve the learning for all students."
The Arkansas Leadership Academy, in partnership with the Arkansas General Assembly, created the Master Principal designation to develop school leaders that utilize transformational and sustainable system change practices, according to the academy's website. The academy concentrates on developing adult leadership and continuous learning as strategic drivers for improving statewide student learning and performance.
"We are excited for Mrs. Doshier and the staff at Hunt Elementary," said Bradley T. Webber Master Principal Program director.
Jared Cleveland, Springdale School District superintendent, said Doshier showcases true professionalism.
"She is an exceptional principal," Cleveland said. "She is dedicated to the betterment of our students, faculty and staff at Hunt Elementary."
Doshier said Springdale Public Schools was a significant factor in earning the designation.
"The collaborative culture of our district allows me to share what I learned through the experience with Master Principal Institute," Doshier said.
