Michael Young, Principal, was nominated as the Polk County nominee for the Florida Council of Instructional Technology Leaders (FCITL) Innovative Principal of the Year Award! We are proud to announce that Mr. Young placed in the top three of the state-wide nominees! Although not the “winner” of the title, Florida’s Innovative Principal of the Year, all at MMS and Polk County recognize his winning leadership. MMS is a technology-rich environment for teachers and students. Through Mr. Young’s leadership, the staff has been encouraged to obtain training in the use of technology in the classroom. He recognizes the importance of technology toward reaching the students’ interests and has increased the amount of available technology. From computers to television equipment, Kindles to art software, Mr. Young has allowed MMS to grow into the 21st century. Please watch the video demonstrating a few of the ways MMS implements technology.
