New principals

With 25 years as an educator, new Northwood principal Dr. Donna Goode has helmed Owens Cross Roads Elementary School in Huntsville, Ala., for 14 years.

"She took the school from a D to an A in one year," Jackson said. "She's been a nominee for the National Elementary School Principal of the Year."

Construction has begun at Northwood as the school becomes a fine and performing arts center, Jackson said, and Goode aid the transition.

"She's just a very humble, sweet person," Jackson said. "I think she's going to be amazing for that school."

Tammy Matz, a 12-year principal at Virgil Grissom Middle School in Mishawaka, Ind., will assume Riverside Elementary’s top job.

"She is full of energy," Jackson said. "They have already gone through the whole common core curriculum piece and we have not. She is going to be very valuable."
