Yesterday morning, BBA President Lisa Arrowood observed a humanities teacher meeting, greeted students, and visited classrooms at the Frederick Pilot Middle School in Dorchester through the Principal for a Day Program. Every year the BBA President heads out to visit a local school through the Program, which aims to build support for the local school system by pairing corporate and community leaders with school administrators for a morning. Lisa shadowed Principal Pauline Lugira and saw the innovative steps the school is taking to help their students achieve academic success, as well as the challenges in the community and school system that play a role in the students’ ability to learn.
“I was really impressed with everyone I met at every level: the teachers, principal and superintendent,” reported Lisa at a meeting of the BBA Council. “These people are fully invested in helping the kids succeed.”
