Shelley Archuleta-Smith, Assistant Principal, Andrew Jackson Elementary School, Nashville, TN
During school hours, you work tirelessly to support staff and keep your school running smoothly, ensuring a safe and enriching learning environment in which every child can succeed. After dismissal, you’re still on the job. Teachers look to you for leadership and guidance. Parents come to you with questions and concerns. Students consider you a role model.
You do it all, and you love it. But even principals require support. TPA and NAESP are committed to providing the resources you need to serve your students, school, and community to your full potential.
