CONCORD - Principals and teachers from across the state gathered Tuesday for the annual N.H. Association of School Principal’s workshop and luncheon to honor some of their own.
Several principals were recognized for achievements at their respective schools and working with parents, students and staff in and outside of the classroom.
Shelly Larochelle of Northwest Elementary School in Manchester was one of the 2016 Principal of the Year winners.
“I am so proud to be a part of that community they are a beautiful bunch of children, and the parents are fantastic,” said Larochelle. “The staff - I couldn’t say more about. They are just amazing and dedicated individuals.”
Larochelle has spent her entire career in Manchester and at Northwest - the city’s largest elementary school with an enrollment of about 700 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Kim Lydnes - from Dover Middle School - was also among the winners.
“I'm really honored to be recognized by this group,” said Lyndes. “It really makes me feel proud of my school and my community and makes me think about all the great people I work with and there's no way I could do what I do without all of them.”
Another winner - Brian Pickering from Conval Regional High School - also spoke.
“We are always learning, and I think as a principal, you want to model and show continuous growth," he said. "And that's something in education that never stops."
