Since 2015, Ms. Nakelya Mullins has served as principal of University Place Elementary School. During Principal Mullin’s tenure, University Place was AdvanceEd STEM certified last spring of 2018. Ms. Mullins is also a big proponent of UPE's 7 Habits Leadership. It is her belief that as principal, she has the ability to affect change on the large scale. She also takes the time to get to know her students. If you see Ms. Mullins in the morning, she will invariably be greeting parents and students, not missing any student's name and giving each one her individual attention. She says that the greatest enjoyment of her job is “getting those kids to believe in themselves and supporting them as they reach their goals.”
That’s why we 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 Principal Elam as part of National Principals Month.
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.
