I am Jo, and this blog is written with the intent to share tips, strategies, and anecdotes to encourage and share with other school administrators. I felt a distinct kind of isolation when I took the job as an Assistant Principal. Teachers had always been my colleagues, and my social circle consisted of Teachers. I moved to a new school, and realized it can be lonely in the front office! If you are an school administrator, you know what I mean, and its hard to find people in the same position that: a. You trust to tell them that you need help or are having a bad day, and b. You aren’t in competition with for a promotion. This is a place where you can come to share ideas, ask questions, brainstorm with me, and hopefully receive encouragement. The job isn’t easy, but its good. A good kind of hard. Thanks for stopping by!
I just started this blog but hope to write at least twice a week to start. For professional reasons, I will remain anonymous for now. I’m simply Jo.
