Middle School Principal, 700 S. Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood, MO - October 27, 2016
The best parts of this job include interacting with children and the opportunity to build a positive, supportive culture. The most challenging part is ensuring student success, evidenced through assessment results. The staff is amazing, very child centered, working with parents requires empathy and patience. The school principal must be flexible and responsive to emergencies, student behavior needs and staff support. So, while there is a schedule, the day may be very unpredictable. A typical week involves working 60 hours that includes attending evening/weekend events and meetings.
