Anjanette Walker named "Outstanding Assistant Principal"

Grain Valley, Missouri

Anjanette Walker, assistant principal at Prairie Branch and Matthews Elementary Schools in the Grain Valley School District, has been named Outstanding Assistant Principal by the Kansas City Suburban Elementary Principals Association (KCSEPA).

Walker was one of several administrators nominated by fellow elementary and middle level principals and assistant principals from Kansas City area school districts. She was selected by the organization based on meeting rigorous criteria for this award and her outstanding performance as an assistant principal at her schools, in her district, within her community, and beyond.

In the words of her colleagues: “Anjanette is one of the best assistant principals I have ever worked with. She is a true leader.” “She has developed her ability to coach 'in the moment' and has worked with individuals on daily lessons, assessments, behavior management and parent communication.”

Prairie Branch and Matthews Elementary Schools serve kindergarten through fifth grade students in the Grain Valley School District. Walker provides a variety of key support to the principals and their staff. Walker is an active member of KCSEPA and the Missouri Association of Elementary School Principals (MAESP).

The Missouri Outstanding Assistant Principal program honors outstanding elementary and middle-level assistant principals who demonstrate outstanding performance and skills that reflect the best in educational leadership. Each year, MAESP honors twelve Outstanding Assistant Principals from around the state. Walker and 11 other assistant principals will be recognized at the Missouri Association of Elementary School Principals (MAESP) Spring Leadership Conference on Sunday, March 12, 2017.
