Principal's Corner

Interview with Ms. Washington, Foxfire Principal

How long have you been a principal?
15 years

What ideas can you share with our school from your past experiences?
I plan to implement enriching programs, community based organizations, and as many tools as possible for our staff to grow as individuals.  Respect among staff and administration build a collaborative environment filled with joy, love and happiness. In addition, increased parent involvement in the school PTA.

Most Rewarding parts of your job?
When you see children attaining their goals.  Feedback from parents how much  they appreciate the hard work of teachers and staff.  Children going on to higher education and mirroring attributes they learned in our school.

Most Challenging parts of your job?
Some of the challenges are budget cuts, lack of enrichment programs, and lack of support for children with special needs.

What are your goals for Foxfire?
My vision is to ensure all children have opportunities to grow, physically, academically, socially and emotionally.  Also, to create a pleasant learning environment for all working towards the same goal.  Keeping our eye on the prize, while ensuring all students are nurtured and have access to doors of opportunity.

What are your hobbies/interests outside of school?
Travel, quality time with family and friends, music of all different varieties.
