Principal Intern Brad Mann’s thoughts on Skinner

I want to thank the entire Skinner team for all the support, encouragement, and learning you have given me throughout this school year. I am convinced that I will be a better school leader having had the gift of being at Skinner as a Principal Intern. You all are truly amazing!

Some of the gleanings that have deeply impacted me are:

  • The commitment of the entire staff in developing life-long learners – your hunger to improve and perfect your craft pours mightily into the students.
  • A student support team that perseveres, adapts, and is unrelenting in creating a seamless safety net for all students
  • A leadership team that pours their heart and energy into building capital within every member of their team
  • The ‘linking of arms’ in the task of creating an even better Skinner: from afterschool PIE/tutoring, to character development in the cafeteria, to the sparkle that is continuously present in the facilities, to the collaborative efforts of Neighborhood center and School. Everyone gets involved!!
  • Finally, a pervasive willingness to step in and help when there is a need.

Thank you for embracing me as a learning Leader and investing in me! I hope to make a ‘Skinner thumbprint’ on the schools I get the privilege of serving!
