When classes began last week for West Side School District Harold B. Lee elementary school, Melinda Royer, who was a second grade teacher last year, was settling in behind her desk looking at the confines of her small office instead of facing a bunch of excited students.
Royer is the acting principal of the Harold B. Lee Elementary School for this year, filling in for Melissa Waddoups who took a year off.
“You know it’s both exciting and challenging,” she said on her third day of sitting at the head desk.
The Preston resident had been teaching at the second grade level for six years.
“I really don’t know why Spencer asked me if I would do it, but I pretty much jumped at the chance. This is a great opportunity to see if I would like this type of position in the future,” she said.
