Traveling the Road to Educational Leadership
Handley, Junella D.
Principal, v88 n5 p49-50 May-Jun 2009
For several years, the author has been traveling a path in school leadership that began in 2002, when she left the classroom to become a curriculum resource teacher. Today she holds the position of an assistant principal in the Orange County Public School District in Orlando, Florida. In this position, she participated in the mandatory Preparing New Principals Program (PNPP). It consisted of training, job shadowing, leadership dialogue meetings, and an eight-week internship. Through the PNPP experience, the author got a glimpse of what it really feels like to be in the driver's seat of a school. In reflecting on this ongoing trip, she has compiled a few components of what leaders must know, have, and be able to do when traveling the road to educational leadership.
