Alan Tenreiro, a Rhode Island high school principal, has been selected as the 2016 National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Under Tenreiro's leadership, Cumberland High School in Cumberland, R.I., has doubled its Advanced Placement offerings and expanded the number of STEM courses. The fourth-year principal also established a system that allows for clearer teacher-student feedback, more-uniform expectations for students, and a focus on what students have learned, not just what they've done, according to the NASSP.

Tenreiro previously worked as a social studies teacher and assistant principal in Rhode Island. He is the co-founder and moderator of #edchatri, a weekly Sunday-night Twitter chat in which teachers and administrators discuss education trends and developments in Rhode Island and across the nation.
