  • Amazing leadership team
  • Recognition as an Exemplary School District
  • Improvement from a Level 1 in Literacy to a Level 5 in Literacy

When asked what her favorite part of her job is, Dr. Watkins said, "Every day brings new challenges!  I love the pace and the learning curve present with this roll.  I also have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people through the system and county."
