Mr. Frey, Assistant Principal from Henry C. Maxwell Elementary

NASHVILLE – Today, Tennesseans for Student Success released the final video in our #KnowYourWhy series. This month, we featured Mr. Sam Frey, Assistant Principal of Henry C. Maxwell Elementary School in Antioch, Tennessee. Mr. Frey shares his story of why he became an educator and how he has remained motivated throughout the years.

In the video, Mr. Frey chronicles how his high school counselor paid for him to take the ACT test and encouraged him to go to college away from home, where he excelled as an inner-city educator for fifteen years. His passion for students and their growth is evident through his story.

As an organization, we believe it’s important to celebrate educators and encourage leaders in the community to ‘Know Their Why.’
