Dr. Limmie M. Flowers is a consultant for the Mississippi Department of Education, providing training to school administrators at the building and central office levels in curriculum and assessment, and mentoring first-year principals and/or principals in low-performing schools. Dr. Flowers was a public school educator for 30 years, serving as an elementary teacher, director of early childhood education, and junior high school principal. Prior to her retirement in 2003, Dr. Flowers was assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction in the Clinton Public School District. She successfully led the district's transition to the state's new accreditation and accountability system focusing on curriculum articulation and alignment in grades K-12, high quality professional development, and technology integration. Under her leadership the Clinton Public School District ranked among Mississippi's top school districts on state and national achievement measures.
Mentoring new principals has been as refreshing and rewarding as being a principal, a position for which I just "may" come out of retirement. Please let me know if there are opportunities for mentoring principals in your district.
