Dear Friends,

Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the Delaware Principal for a Day program at Lake Forest Central Elementary in Felton. This Kent County school is led by Principal Bridget Amory and for a few hours one morning, I was her shadow.

The Delaware Principal for a Day program began in 1993 by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce, and it connects business and community leaders with Delaware school principals. The goal is to help us all better understand how to educate our future workforce. This year, more than 100 schools opened their doors to host a guest principal.

Principal Amory led me through her 4th and 5th grade school, where I observed teacher meetings, met with a few parents, visited classrooms and even stepped behind the counter of the school cafeteria to see how the staff incorporates local fresh fruits and vegetables into their daily menu.

The 600 students at Lake Forest Central are lucky to have Principal Amory leading their school. At the end of the day, I went back to my job and she to hers, and I had a greater appreciation for the hard work that goes into educating our students.

Always learning,
