Top-Tier Principal Prepares Tomorrow’s Leaders

It’s back to school time in Georgia.

For some of us, too soon, for others – not soon enough!  With backpacks stocked, school supplies purchased, and new clothes ready to go, the new school year is in full swing.

Perhaps you’ve already met your child’s teacher(s), but how much do you know about the leadership behind those teachers?

Who establishes the vision, sets the direction, and provides the encouragement for those teachers day in and day out?

Our first executive interview spotlights a top-tier administrator and Principal of one of Georgia’s highest ranking schools.  Dr. Tricia Patterson leads an impressive staff of over 100 and shoulders the enormous responsibility of preparing the next generation of leaders for a fast-changing and ever-evolving, global marketplace.

You can read all about how she juggles family, career and 864 kids….
