We received a letter from Irma Zardoya, president & CEO of New York City Leadership Academy, celebrating principals like you. Here is an excerpt:
Being a principal takes courage, commitment, and a clear understanding of the systems and structures that need to be developed to support student learning and tackle inequitable practices head-on..... I am thrilled to use this month to share the stories of principals doing exceptional work, who put their students first and commit tireless energy and resources to supporting their staff in making every day about doing their best for students.
… Please take a few minutes to watch our short film, Power of Leaders, which features a dozen students talking about the impact their principals have had on their lives and takes us into their schools to see their work in action (I. Zardoya, personal communication, October 4, 2017).
How would your students describe you? Take a few moments to think about the impact you are leaving with your students, staff, and community. Celebrate that impact!
