School principals fulfill an impactful role in the education of tomorrow’s generation of leaders and innovators. According to a 2010 survey of 40,000 teachers, conducted by Scholastic Inc. and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, 68 percent of teachers surveyed stated that supportive school leadership was even more important than a higher salary.
An effective principal must be equal parts visionary, manager, communicator, instructional leader, community builder, disciplinarian and mediator. School administrators are required to work well with not only the teachers, but also the support staff, students, parents and key community stakeholders. The principal’s job is by nature multidisciplinary.
