Stakeholder Feedback

"I just wanted to drop you a little note to tell you that you are doing a GREAT job at the Junior High. I get to see some of what principals endure and I do not envy you. Trying to please parents, students, faculty, the community, etc. is no easy task and you are doing it beautifully.


I wanted to share that the students notice your hard work too. I have an 8th and 6th grader. They have told me how they love having you as a principal. My oldest even told me how she really likes that you try to get to know all the students. She said that normally principals know the troubled kids but not the good ones(because they aren't in the office)....but not with you. You try to get to know ALL of them. Keep in mind that these words are coming from a 14 and 12 yr old. Normally I do good to get an "OK" from them when I ask has school was;)


Anyway....I wanted you to know that your love for your students does not go unnoticed! I hope you have a great weekend and let the countdown to Thanksgiving break begin!!!!"

I've had the privilege of working for a variety of different principals; however -- you, Amy Whittle, have a special gift as a principal. You are indeed a friend to educators, an enthusiastic guide to students, and leader who strives daily to make everyone and everything around you better. You are a Blessing to HISD.


- Carmen Hamilton, teacher


Thank you for all that you do around the school. You are basically a super hero. Thank you for all that you do for my school. You're the best!
