Four Parkland principals and assistant principals were nominated by their peers in this year’s contest by Broward County Public Schools.
Among those nominated for the assistant principal of the year are Daisy Menendez, of Park Trails Elementary School and Daniel Most, of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
In the category of the principal of the year, both Jo-Anne Misiewicz-Seltzer of Riverglades Elementary School and Matthew Bianchi of Westglades Middle School were honored.
The award, given by Broward County Public Schools recognizes outstanding school administrators for their contributions to students, schools, and communities. Nominees are judged on several criteria, including educational history and professional activities, creativity and innovation, leadership, professional recognition, and achievements.
Although the four did not make it into the finals, those who did will be recognized at the 2020 Caliber Awards Ceremony recognizing the district’s outstanding teachers, principals, assistant principals, and school-related employees on January 16 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.
