The Energy to Lead
Sieveke-Pearson, Starla
Principal Leadership, v10 n8 p54-57 Apr 2010
Being an assistant principal can be difficult, but using a professional learning community (PLC) to explore and capitalize on the aspects of the job that give one energy can help. The author shares her experience in serving as an assistant principal in a suburban school district in Colorado that supports the professional learning and growth of assistant principals through monthly half-day meetings, part of which were dedicated to professional learning communities. This article chronicles the PLC work of a districtwide group of elementary and secondary assistant principals over the course of a school year and provides a glimpse of what gives, takes, and wastes the energy of the group. A framework of assistant principal PLC is presented.
