Coastal Academy High School Principal Samantha Bartrom was featured in the SDCOE Principal Spotlight. In response to the COVID pandemic, the spotlight allowed select principals to share their challenges, inspiration, and encouragement. Bartrom learned to “Always assume positive intent. In any given moment, I like to believe that everyone is doing the very best they can,” she stated. The Principal Spotlight was produced by The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) District and School Improvement (DSI) team, which supports K-12 administrators.
