Whether you are new to administration, new to your position or simply in need of support, New Principal Connect will address key topics 6 times this year in 60 minute sessions.
MASSP recognizes the importance of supporting those who are new to the profession or administrators who have moved schools that may appreciate some support. The pandemic has made the difficult job of a building administrator even more complex. When you are new and overwhelmed it can be difficult to find a mentor and develop a support network. Principal Connect allows you to make these important connections with statewide colleagues from your desk. These mentoring sessions will be facilitated by MASSP’s Tammy Jackson. Tammy’s many years of leadership experience, her work with MASSP and her passion for supporting leaders makes her an invaluable resource.
May 18: Hiring & Retaining Teachers
Since 2015 colleges and universities have seen a steady decline in the number of students selecting a career in education. The fall has been expedited by the difficulty associated with the pandemic. Schools have no choice but to learn effective practices in hiring and retaining teachers.
Participants in the session will hear statistical information about the current and projected future of teacher candidates. Best practices in the hiring and retention of teachers will be explored. Upon completion of this session, participants will be better positioned to reflect on current practices in hiring and retention and begin the process of revising the way the process is managed.
