Principal of the YearCara Cronk, principal at Buddy Taylor Middle School is the Flagler Schools Principal of the Year. She’s held her current position since last year, after serving two years as an assistant principal at BTMS and two years as an assistant principal at Matanzas High School. “I just feel like this is a great testament to my team,” says Cronk of this honor. “I could not do this without all the people behind me, our entire leadership team. They are amazing, they support me...we are constantly looking for new things to do for our kids here at Buddy Taylor.”

Superintendent Mittelstadt praised Mrs. Cronk for the work she’s done. “Unchartered waters when she came in last year. We still had students working from home and in our classrooms. She was able to keep the staff motivated. She and her team did some amazing things keeping students engaged through the spring and into the summer. Cara has done a tremendous job in providing support to all Buddy Taylor teachers, employees, staff, and most importantly, the students.”

Mrs. Cronk attended Florida Atlantic University for her undergraduate degree in Education. She earned her Master’s in Educational Leadership and Administration from American College of Education. She’s worked with Flagler Schools since August 2004. She was named Flagler Schools Assistant Principal of the Year in 2018.
