This is my 15th year as a Miami Sunset High School teacher, 10 of them under Dr. Lucia Cox as principal.
Herald letter writer Miles Woolley wrote that Cox was brilliant, hardworking and caring. I would add the word “humble,” because the qualities mentioned were never on display to students and teachers during her tenure.
She should have walked out of her office occasionally to notice garbage bags on the floor in the morning, rooms not swept for days on end, graffiti on walls and in restrooms and mold, especially in the locker rooms. Maybe she should have believed the emails from faculty about the cleaning problems.
We at Sunset hope we get what we deserve: A principal who interacts with the student body in the hallways and the classrooms, demands that teachers impart knowledge and not just pass out dittos and expects students and teachers to act in accordance with school district’s policies and rules.
Then, indeed, we won’t be able to “hide that Knight pride.”
