New Principal Spotlight: Afiya Code

The Bossier Parish School District is shining a spotlight on Afiya Code, the newly appointed principal at Greenacres Middle School.

Code is originally from Bastrop and graduated from LSU-Baton Rouge with a degree in Mass Communications.

“I wanted to be a television news anchor,” she shared. “I am entering my 24th year in education. I started my teaching career in Morehouse Parish. I taught first grade for one year before moving to Bossier, then
taught nine years in Caddo Parish at Linear Middle School, Caddo Middle Career and Technology School (formerly Hollywood Middle) and Turner Elementary/ Middle School. After leaving Caddo, I taught 7th grade ELA for three years at Greenacres Middle. In 2012, I became the Curriculum Coach for Rusheon Middle School, followed by the ELA Curriculum Coordinator grades 6th-8th. Most recently, I have been serving as an Assistant Principal at Cope Middle School.”
