Advice for a Beginning Principal
Seek advice, have confidence in yourself, keep a strong sense of purpose as a moral compass, talk to your colleagues, take time out to relax, develop your filters in making decisions around students eg “family, factory, jungle,cathedral” to maintain a balanced approach.
Inspiring Leadership Quote
Leading in a culture of change means creating a culture (not just a structure) of change. It does not mean adopting innovations, one after another; it does mean producing the capacity to seek, critically assess, and selectively incorporate new ideas and practices—all the time, inside the organization as well as outside it. ( Michael Fullan)
