AAMLE President's Message
We want you to feel that you are a welcomed part of the Arkansas Association of Middle Level Education (AAMLE), and that each person that accesses this website will receive the best information available on middle level education. Our theme for this year is,
“Academic Achievement and Well-Being.”
As principals of Arkansas schools, we are responsible for conducting continued in-service education for all personnel on a regular basis to interpret and implement established policies and curriculum.
Teachers are equally critical to the learning process and we further believe that teachers must have the authority necessary to manage their classrooms in a manner that results in an effective learning climate. With the advent of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), we are encouraged to incorporate project problem-based learning along with authentic real world assessments. By doing this we will better prepare our students for future learning and achievement.
Ultimately, each student will gain from school according to the effort he/she applies. To increase the degree of educational success, it is very important that teachers, parents and administrators communicate openly and frequently concerning the progress of their students.
If AAMLE can assist you as a middle level educator, please feel free to contact us. I hope each one of you have a productive school year as we take our next steps with Common Core State Standards, the Teacher Excellence and Support System (TESS), and the Arkansas Leader Excellence and Development System (LEADS) .
Thank you for your support of middle level education in Arkansas,
Joy Graham, President
