Description:

Please let us know by March 14th if you plan to attend - Repeat from June 2017

At some point in a classroom teacher's career, one ponders if they should leave the classroom to become an assistant principal or eventually a principal. This workshop examines how a potential candidate for school leadership should go about making the decision to become a school leader, how to prepare for the challenges that will occur, and how to apply for and select a particular school. Once there, how do the challenges of school leadership differ from those that a teacher encounters in the classroom? This workshop covers: developing the administrator resume and cover letter, matching your personal philosophy to a particular school district, as well as determining if you are the "right fit" for the job. Qualities that promote being an effective school leader will also be examined. In addition, a four-step method for solving administrative problems at the school level will be taught and practiced using case studies. The workshop will include some lecture but employ participant discussion and case studies based on common problems that assistant principals and principals face as leaders in the schools.
