Under principal Leonora (Schmit) Noble, Lister Elementary Magnet School in Tacoma is setting academic and attendance benchmarks for area schools. By combining the school's English as a Second Language and Title I programs into a single, cohesive unit, Ms. (Schmit) Noble and her staff have created smaller learning groups of students taught collaboratively by a highly skilled team of teachers. The result has been an increase in student achievement. She has also improved student attendance through the Attendance Club, which awards banners and prizes to classrooms with the highest attendance. As elementary legislative liaison for the Association of Washington School Principals, Ms. (Schmit) Noble shares her insight and experience in educational administration with her peers.
