It’s been quite a year for Viera High School’s Sarah Robinson.

In addition to entering her first full year as the school’s principal, she was named the Brevard County Public Schools’ Assistant Principal of the Year for her work with the Hawks during the previous school year.

Robinson not only served as the school’s acting principal after Mike Alba took a job with the district last November, she also continued to oversee the school’s curriculum, which was her role as an assistant principal.

It was her ability to function in both roles that likely not only led to her award, but to her being officially promoted to principal in May. 

“She fulfilled both roles with excellence,” BPS Superintendent Mark Mullins said in a press release.

“Mrs. Robinson has consistently demonstrated both the instructional and organization leadership needed to ensure student achievement and manage a large high school. Faculty development is a focus for her.”

Robinson will be recognized by the Brevard County School Board at a meeting on Aug. 27.  She will also go on to interview in the state competition for Florida Assistant Principal of the Year.

When asked about her award Friday morning, Robinson praised the work of Viera High’s entire staff.

“It shouldn’t be about me,” she said. “There was a team of people. There were many assistant principals at Viera that stepped up at that time. Our teacher leaders (stepped up) … so many teachers, so many people were involved.

“It’s about the school and everyone coming together. That’s how our school made it through and had a successful year last year. It’s the team that we have. That’s what it’s really about.”
