We often hear about teachers who go the extra mile. One middle school principal in Raleigh, North Carolina is doing just that, literally. When Elizabeth MacWilliams was a teacher, she learned that educators sometimes mistake the absence of parents at meetings and parent-teacher conferences as a lack of caring. She realized going that extra mile for students and families is sometimes just what students need to excel in school. Now, as a principal, she makes personal visits to the homes of students at her school. That’s over 900 families! Take a look at the impact MacWilliams is having on her students and their families.
