National Principals' Month

Morton Since 2014, Danielle Morton has served as principal of the Tuscaloosa Career and Technology Academy. During the time, she has sought to create authentic experiences for students in their career pathway of interest and skill set so they are successful in their chosen careers. TCTA strives to foster a high-level academic and technical learning environment that provides students with experiences and exposure to career opportunities and apprenticeships after graduation. That has come as the result of collaborative efforts between community and industry partners and teachers.

That’s why we recognize join with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the American Federation of School Administrators this October as we honor the hard work and dedication of Morton as part of National Principals Month.


Morton believes leadership contributes to improved outcomes for students. "Leaders must have a clear vision shared amongst faculty and staff which creates opportunities for students to better prepare for the workforce," said Morton.

National Principals Month is your opportunity to say “thank you” to principals everywhere and to share with the community all the great things that principals do. Click to send a thank you to your child’s principal or use the hashtag #ThankAPrincipal on Facebook or Twitter.
