Millington Elementary hosted a visit by the Tennessee Education Commissioner, Candice McQueen, on Friday, September 22. The visit started with a proper introduction into Millington by Mayor Terry Jones. Commissioner McQueen then met with Principal Kathy Wilson, Instructional Facilitator Virginia Rogers, and other members of the Millington Elementary staff about the school’s work in early literacy and the Read to be Ready coaching network.

Mrs. Wilson then directed the way to classrooms so Commissioner McQueen could observe instruction at its finest. The two classrooms the Commissioner was able to visit were Amy Tickle’s First Grade class and Kristy Corzine’s Third Grade class. During the visit in these rooms, Commissioner McQueen observed a mini-lesson and then introduced herself to students and asked them engaging questions about the teachers and their favorite aspects of Millington Elementary.

Following the classroom visits, the Commissioner stopped to visit with a few students walking down the hall, towards the cafeteria for lunch. After a comical conversation with one student about her favorite lunch, Commissioner McQueen’s visit was complete.
