Metro Nashville Public School is adding four new educators as part of what the district is calling its “high school transformation.”

“This team of talented educators bring a great wealth of knowledge and experience to our high school,” says Jay Steele, associate superintendent of high schools.

The four new leaders are:

• Kelly Henderson, currently a coordinator of career and technical education, will now serve as the Executive Director of Instruction for High Schools;

• Michel Sanchez-Wall, currently a high priority schools specialist for the state of Tennessee, will be the new principal at Cane Ridge High School;

• Erika Williams, currently an educational consultant for schools in Atlanta, will become the new principal at Maplewood High School;

• Chae Denning, currently the learning through internship coordinator and school counselor at Nashville Big Picture High School, will assume the role of principal at Big Picture High School.

I know one of the people mentioned here and have to be honest. She is not even slightly qualified for the position she's being placed in. But she is replacing someone who was almost as equally unqualified.

No wonder Metro Nashville schools are performing so badly.

Why don't they outsource these jobs too? Won't it save money so they can give raises to the central office?

Good point, Kosh.
Also, how about the name 'Big Picture High School' ?- can't wait to see the mascot.
