The state commissioner of education's visit to Whitney Achievement Elementary School was about over as principal Debra Broughton was asked for her reflection of the fast-moving experience.
"This visit is empowering," Broughton said. "It is energizing and for the next quarter I can persevere knowing that we did the work and that we've laid a great foundation, that we can start to push harder and begin to see the fruits of our labor."
Commissioner Kevin Huffman's visit was one of several stops during a busy Wednesday in Memphis that included a closed-door session with some teachers. At Whitney, the tour group included Broughton, Achievement School District (ASD) Supt. Chris Barbic and State Rep. Barbara Cooper (D-Memphis) dropping in on several classrooms.
