May 11, 2009 - Carrie Zales

PARC would like to congratulate Carrie Zales for her receipt of the prestigious T. Walsh McQuillan Award from the School Administrators Association of New York State.  Carrie is the principal at the Oak Street Elementary School in Plattsburgh.  Quoting from the award ceremony:

This award is given annually to an administrator who has demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and has made exceptional contributions to elementary education.

Carrie is an outstanding principal and is revered by both students and teachers.  She is known for her unending efforts to maximize the quality of the student’s daily learning experience, and for her insistence on accountability and responsibility.  She is also known as a tireless defender of programs that promote the health and welfare of the student, and for her emphasis on direct, candid, and effective communication with her staff on all student-related issues.

Carrie is a graduate of Plattsburgh State, lives in the City with her family, and participates in many out-of-school activities.  She is a prime example of all that is good in education.  She works hard for the betterment of the students and teachers in her school, exudes enthusiasm and confidence on the job, and is ready and willing to take a leadership role on important issues affecting the education and lives of her students.

Hearty congratulations to Carrie and her family, to the staff at Oak Street Elementary, and to the school board and administration of the Plattsburgh City School District.  Carrie, you are a bright light in our community.  Keep up the great work!
