Reflections on the Role of the Catholic School Principal.
Kealey, Robert J., Ed.
The seven articles contained in this book examine the role of the Catholic school principal. These articles address four topics: the call of the educational leader to excellence; the call of the principal to be a spiritual person; the call of the educational minister to be part of the team directing the total parish's educational ministry; and the call of the head teacher to be a promoter of faculty development. The following articles are included: (1) "The Excellence Ethos and the Leadership Role" (Roselmina Indrisano); (2) "A Reflection on the Spirituality of the Principal" (Caroline Cappel): (3) "The Spirituality of the Catholic School Principal" (Margaret Gorman); (4) "The Catholic School Principal: Spiritual Leader and Creator" (Theodore Drahmann); (5) "The Principal as Part of the Pastoral Team" (John A. Thomas and Barbara Davis); (6) "The Role of the Principal in the Ongoing Education of Teachers" (Karen Ristau); and (7) "The Principal as Teacher of Teachers" (Susanne Perri). (Author/SI)
