"I love being an elementary school principal! Each day is exciting, different, challenging, successful and rewarding! The students are my motivation to be at my best every day. Being committed to the educational process for all students and a support for all staff is not only imperative, but it also helps create a positive culture for growth."
Matthew Piechota - Catlin Elementary principal
"I knew I wanted to teach at OPS after college. I chose to stay with the district because of my commitment to our staff and students. The joy, excitement and pride I felt as a teacher when I would witness growth and see smiles is the same excitement and joy as a principal. One of my favorite parts of each day is greeting students as they arrive. Working side by side with all my staff at Wilson Focus school is motivating. We all share the passion of doing what is best for kids."
Lu Ann Jacobs - Wilson Focus principal
