Our new principal, Doris Moore is awesome! Even though she is the 4th principal of OTE in 4 years, she has worked very hard to create a safe, friendly, and welcoming learning environment for students, staff, and parents. In her first year, she has implemented 'Cougar Coffee Chat', where she meets with parents monthly to listen to our concerns and questions; 'Principal's Lunch Club', where she haves lunch with every student in the school regularly to spend time and get to know them; she sends parents a weekly voice mail, and I could go on and on. Bill Cosby said, 'I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.' He was right, because you can't please some people. Mrs. Moore consistently says, we will do what is best for children! I applaud her effectiveness as strong, positive, and personable instructional leader.
