  1. What happened to the last principal – wasn't she only there for a year or two? Was she only an interim principal? She seemed like a neat person. Hopefully this next principal will be good too.

  2. My daughter attends Whittier – we got a letter this week that just said Mrs McMillian will be reassigned within the district. My experiences with her weren't pleasant, but I'm just one parent, and have heard mixed reviews on her performance.

    My daughter loves “Miss Mac” though and was sad when I told her she was leaving.

  3. Principal reassignments are not uncommon and sometimes it takes a while to find the best fit for a school. it is my sincere hope that this does not turn into one big Whittier gossip session.

  4. Oh AP,
    I have known 4 different pricipals of Whitter over the course of the last dozen years or so- not this last one though….
    They all had their strong points and weaknesses.

    What we are saying is:
    “don't get your panties in a bunch”
    and that other old adage – “if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.”
