Don't do it alone!
The position of principal can be lonely... but it doesn't have to be, and it shouldn't be! Building networks with other colleagues can help inform your practice, keep you going when things are tough, and give you connections that help you better serve your school.
Our guest hosts for episode five are quick to testify about the power of the principal making connections. Stephanie Johnson is the Deputy Superintendent of the Georgia Department of Education and was the 2017 Georgia High School Principal of the Year (GASSP) and a finalist for National Principal of the Year (NASSP) for the work she led at Maynard H. Jackson High School in Atlanta (Atlanta Public Schools).
Jim Finch is the Principal of Mary Persons High School in Monroe County (Forsyth) and is the Vice-President of the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals (GASSP).
Along with a live chat-audience, Stephanie, Jim, and Mark take time to talk about how and why the effective principal connects and how it's beneficial for the progress of the school.
