TALLAHASSEE -- Marsha Higgins took the black eye of bad grades and turned it into a photo op with Gov.Jeb Bush.

For two years, the principal at Brentwood Middle School revamped her school's reading program to get children interested in books, dedicating classroom time to tutoring and reading blocks.
The payoff came Wednesday when Higgins stood before a Capitol audience of educators to help showcase the latest and final annual round of classroom education gains under Bush's tenure.
Higgins was one of two principals from across the state chosen to stand beside Bush and speak as he announced school grades.
"Thanks to the hard work and the creativity and the joy that clearly exists at this wonderful school, 68 percent of Brentwood students made learning gains in reading, including 79 percent of struggling students, and 65 percent of students made learning gains in math," Bush said.
Brentwood was a D school a year ago but boosted its grade card to a B for the 2005-06 school year -- the best grade the school has earned since school grading began in 1999.
"So much of that was spontaneous for teachers who love to teach and love kids, and that's what we have at Brentwood Middle School," Higgins said."We're so proud of you."
Higgins was accompanied by about 25 Brentwood teachers, including reading teacher Denisha Stanley.
