12/7/2012 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, AL  -- Preparing the students at Maxwell Elementary Middle School to be educationally competitive on a global scale is just one of the routes into a new direction that has been outlined by newly appointed principal, Robbie Swint.

Selected as the principal in October, Swint feels that his previous years of experience as an assistant principal, including his most recent at Shughart Elementary School in Fort Bragg, N.C., has equipped him with the knowledge and background to help the students at Maxwell Elementary Middle School to reach their full learning potential.

"I understand my role here as principal," he said. "In order to best understand the role I had to be an outstanding assistant principal first."
Being an instructional leader for quality educators for the good of the students is a philosophy that Swint said he firmly believes in and practices.

A typical day for Swint begins by greeting staff and students with a welcoming smile and lending his assistance with the crossing guard and car riding duties when he sees fit. He also navigates from classroom to classroom for quick observations, paying close attention to the instructional delivery from teachers and the attentiveness of the students.

While currently the school's new principal, Swint also is in the process of obtaining his doctoral degree from Grand Canyon University.
Swint promises that under his leadership the more than 400 students at Maxwell Elementary Middle School will become the "finest critical thinkers and problem solvers."

Swint feels that his efforts, as well the efforts of the staff and teachers closely working together, can help students become even more productive in school while also becoming equally productive in society.

"In the future, these students will be competing with other students from all over the world for a job in years to come," he said. "As a military veteran, I have seen what the competition is like in other parts of the world, and I do not want the students coming from a school that I am principal of, having to play catch up to anyone else."

Swint aims to give the students at Maxwell a quality education that will enhance their futures.
"I want to instill into them the necessary components of what it is going to take to help them stand out and be noticed first, by employers," he said.
