Being the Assistant Principal comes with many hats, but one of my favorite is being able to make those connections with students on behavior that will change their trajectory in life on where they will go. Many times, it is the littlest acts of kindness and grace that open the eyes and doors to new possibilities.- Rhonda Mills
