It may not have been an easy decision, but now that Eric Martinez is a semester into his new position as principal at Waubun Public Schools, he knows he made the right choice.


"Things are going very well," Martinez said early this week. "This is a great community, with lots of support, great kids and a super staff. They are focused on change, on making a difference, which I really like."

That's not to say he didn't enjoy his old job.
