Principal for a Day at Emerson Parkside Academy Charter School

Just thought you'd like to know that I had the privilege to serve as a Principal for a Day (again), this time at Emerson Parkside Academy Charter School at Josie and Willow in the 5th District.

Emerson Parkside Academy Charter School is one of 63 elementary schools in Long Beach Unified. It is a charter school that serves 628 students in grades K-5.

What a great school. Dedicated principal (for real) Mark Andreatta who loves the students and took me to every class on the campus. The teachers are fantastic and everyone of them had the kids totally engaged in learning.

It was a treat to meet everyone and to talk with the 3rd graders who met in the auditorium to ask questions of both principals for a day. I have to admit I was outclassed by Sgt. Scott Minkus who came in full police uniform. So thank you for the experience.

Three of my staff also served at other schools: Patrick Henry Elementary, Cubberly Elementary and Helen Keller Elementary.
