Daniel Abraham has been named the 2019 Wyoming Assistant Principal of the Year by the Wyoming Association of Secondary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Mr. Abraham will formally be recognized at the 2019 National Principals Conference, and will be considered for the 2019 NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year.
Daniel’s focus on what is best for students is relentless. He approaches his work every day with a target of student achievement at the heart of his work. Not only does Daniel have the student in mind, first and foremost, but he collaborates daily with faculty to ensure all students are provided equity in opportunity and support in order for students to reach the highest levels of achievement.
The assistant principal is among the most crucial and least understood roles in education. As school leadership has become a more complicated endeavor, the assistant principal’s role has evolved into an important part of the leadership team, engaged in instructional leadership and in creating a positive climate, beyond just traditional student discipline.
As part of the award, each state assistant principal of the year will receive an expenses-paid trip to the NASSP National Principals Conference in Boston, MA, July 18–20, 2019. A panel of experts designated by NASSP will review the applications of all state winners to select three finalists for national recognition in March. A separate panel will then review the finalists to select the NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year to be announced during Assistant Principals Week – April 8-12, 2019.
