Staff Spotlight-Jenny Breeding, Principal

Hi! I am thrilled to be serving the Midland community for the 4th year as the Principal! As Midland's principal, I believe that my role is to grow talent, help all staff continuously improve, and to maintain a safe learning environment. I will be starting my 18th year working in a school and what I love the most about being an educator is working with children (they are hilarious) and being a part of a school community. My Midland family is part of my extended family.
