Podcasts: Things They Didn't Teach in Principal School
Have you ever wondered if other principals’ days are as crazy as yours? They are, and this series of mini-lessons from fellow principals will have you laughing, reflecting and learning from others who make split-second decisions daily. From parents sending unwrapped bottles of vodka as teachers’ gifts to ambulances showing up in parking lots at dismissal time, principals have seen it all. Each entertaining episode will give you insight into real-life leadership challenges that no education leadership textbook can cover.
