Robert Abney, Principal

Tierra Antigua Elementary School

Honoring our principals as part of National Principals Month

PRINCIPAL SPOTLIGHT: ROBERT ABNEY

Meet Robert Abney, Principal at Tierra Antigua Elementary School.

What made you decide to become a principal?

I felt like being a principal gave me a better opportunity to serve the needs of a school community.

What advice would you provide to someone interested in becoming a principal?
The most important thing for a principal to remember is balance: Balance between the needs of students, staff, and the school community; balance between expectations and reality; and balance between what is important and unimportant.

Please share with us one experience you are proud of or a rewarding experience you have had as principal.
Every moment that I get to spend walking through the halls and classrooms of my school, visiting with students and staff, reminds me of why I chose to do what I do.

Please provide one sentence/paragraph about your overall thoughts of being a principal, and what it means to you.

If you aren't having fun as a school principal, you're doing it wrong.
