National Principals Month Profile: Tara Burney, Principal of Midway Hills Primary School


Baldwin native Tara Burney has been working in education for 23 years. This year marks her third year serving as principal of Midway Hills Primary. In her opinion, the best part about being a school leader at the primary school is a delightful combination of the amazing teachers, students and parents that make Midway Hills Primary the absolute best place to work.

“We have students who are eager to learn. They work hard every day to accomplish their academic goals. The teachers are dedicated, hardworking people who sacrifice a lot for others. They are flexible when necessary and they work harder than any other profession. Finally, parents of students at MHP are the most supportive parents of any school I have worked for. They are passionate and do what is necessary to make sure their children are receiving the best education po
