Partner School Boasts ‘Principal of the Year’

The Big Brain Club is thrilled to congratulate Dr. Jeanette Patterson of Horizon Community Middle School on her recognition as 2014 Colorado Middle Level Principal of the Year by the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE).

Dr. Patterson has been at Horizon for seven years, and during that time has ushered in positive change in the school’s culture, its student achievement, and the enrichment of its faculty. (She also played a critical role in bringing The Big Brain Club to her students.)

Says teacher Debra Carter, “Dr. Patterson cares deeply about the students at Horizon Middle School by creating an atmosphere that encourages collaborative interactions with parents, staff and students in order to promote and meet high academic standards . . . where every child has the opportunity to learn and realize their vision, dream, future excellence and academic success.”

The Principal of the Year program recognizes leaders who have succeeded in providing high-quality opportunities for students. Selection criteria include personal excellence, collaborative leadership, curriculum, instruction, assessment, and personalization of learning opportunities for students. The award is sponsored by MetLife and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Dr. Patterson was honored during an event at Horizon, and will again be acknowledged at the 45th Annual CASE Education Leadership Convention this summer in Breckenridge.

Congratulations to a very deserving teacher. Keep up the great work!
