On October 11th, Christine, (the Founder of Waste Less Living, Inc.), was invited to be “principal for the day” at Hamilton Elementary School. From 8:30am-11:30am, she shadowed the principal while she went about her duties. As an added bonus, Christine found herself sharing the day with Congresswoman Judy Chu in recognition of the school reaching an API score over 900! It was an opportunity for Christine to get some insight into how public schools are doing.
After the experience, Christine was thoroughly impressed with not only the dynamic leadership of Principal Weissenberger but also with ability of its teachers to engage their students and manage the classroom. It was evident that Hamilton School’s API success story was attributable to a strong and balanced working relationship between the principal, the teachers, parents, support staff and engaged parents. Congratulations Hamilton School!
