Welcome to Principal Thoughts. Being a principal can be the most rewarding role in education. However, being an effective principal is not automatic. I don’t know how you became a principal, some of us fell into the position while some actively pursued it. Either way, I think we all agree that being a prinicpal involves a lot more than we ever expected. Are we leaders? Teachers? Managers?

This blog will examine what it means to be a principal and discuss ways that we can be better principals. I hope that through this exploration, we can all become better at this unique career of being a pricipal.
