Part of the job description as an administrator is selling your school to potential parents and their children. Not sure if this was in the owners manual when I signed up, but it is a time to reflect on what is going on in your school. If you believe you have built a culture of learning and care within your building, then the discussion with parents is quite easy.
That was the case the other day when I got the chance to speak with parents who wanted to know about our school for their son entering September 2015. I was extremely confident in my school and staff as to what we have built over the past three years since my arrival. It is very reassuring when you speak of best practices and how we, at our school, are preparing our students for the future.
No matter what the school, promoting our #vsb39 sites is important to continue growing what is a great District.
I am the Principal at Mount Pleasant Elementary School in Vancouver, BC. I am passionate about inspiring others to be creative, curious and collaborative in their learning
