Mrs. Gena Robinson- Principal

I am Principal Robinson! I am a native of Montgomery, Alabama and I have served as the principal of Garrett Elementary School for two years. I have worked in education for 19 years while serving children at Brewbaker Primary, Highland Avenue, and MacMillan International Baccalaureate previously. I have had the pleasure of impacting the lives of others as a teacher, reading specialist, and assistant principal, and principal. 

I am a proud graduate of Alabama State University and Auburn University of Montgomery.   

My educational philosophy is anchored in understanding "Children do not care how much you know; until they know
how much you care.

I would describe my leadership style with three words, "humility, love and encouragement".
