My first term as principal has been a huge learning curve and full of fun. Here are my top ten tips for surviving as a leader in a primary school.
Trust your staff.
Love your staff.
Inform your parents.
Don’t think you are above anyone else.
If a teacher is absent, teach their class.
Know every child’s name.
Implement changes slowly with diplomacy.
Love you staff again!
Happy holidays to all my fellow teachers. Next term I’ll be sharing lots of free teaching resources. Stay tuned!!!!
