Dillard Academy Charter School

Carole Battle, center, interim principal at Dillard Academy Charter School, retired from Wayne County Public Schools after more than 40 years in a variety of roles, including principal at Carver Heights Elementary and Wayne Academy. While she enjoys the administrative role, she says she enjoys spending time in the classroom and still frequently pops in to see what students are doing. In this photo, she visited Kay Cox’s sixth-grade class, studying a unit on the Holocaust that day.
