Screen shot 2013-02-28 at 4.52.51 AMKimberly Buckheit was honored earlier this week for bring named the Maine Middle Level Principal of the Year by the Maine Principal Association. Bangor Daily News staff writer Abigail Curtis covered the story for the newspaper.

I have had the opportunity to work with Kim over the years and know that she has worked hard and collaboratively with students, staff and parents in the community of Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast.

Kim was recognized in front of students and staff where she said: “I’m commonly in the hallway with the kids. Helping them. Talking to them about what they’re doing.” We know that is a necessary and sometimes difficult with all the details that educators are juggling. Student council president Emily Harriman said: “She’s always there for us and so easy to talk to. I feel that she deserves it.”

CONGRATULATIONS KIM and Troy Howard Middle School!
