The role of a school administrator is arguably one of the most challenging positions for any individual in a leadership position.  The ability to provide personal attention to daily details of individual student, parent, or staff member while orchestrating the mass to a cohesive common goal requires a level of competence and patience very few perfect during their tenure.  The clear difference between a leader instilling and providing a vision for the school and a manager merely maintaining the status quo, is the difference between a thriving and vibrant school of learners and an average school focused on percent gains on standardized tests.

Joining us on Inspiring Educators is Penny Sturtevant, a middle school Principal from Ohio.  Penny's unlikely journey into education as a teacher, counselor, and to her current role as the Principal reflects her people centered style of leadership.  The role of a Principal at top can be a lonely journey, but Penny's approach and philosophy, a great institution does not stand on any single leadership alone, but with an effective team, has set into motion a successful partnership with teachers, students, and parents.
