Why You Should Join Your State Principal's Association!

This year I was "nominated" to be the President of SWMAESP. It is an honor to serve my area principals. However, I know there are more of you out there looking for that professional group to connect with. This blog entry is created to be an information spot to send to principals who may not be a part of a professional organization. We want you to be a part of ours!

Below is an embedded document with lots of reason's to be a part of our local organization as well as the national organization, NAESP. Other than what is listed on the document there are some unintentional bonus benefits to becoming part of our group....
  • We are a like-minded group of professionals that like to hang-out and talk shop during the school year!
  • We want to help each other.
  • We know that by sharing our ideas with others, we get more ideas in return.
  • We like to "Pay it Forward."
  • We want to be a part of your PLN - Professional Learning Network
  • Help is just a phone call away! Even on your worst day you can reach out and we will help you find a solution and add a little humor for no extra cost!
  • We build friendships that will last long after the sunset of your principal-ship.
  • We provide professional development every time we meet.
  • We have large and small group meetings through-out the year.
So what's holding you back?! We are all in this together and I know that when I collaborate I am a much better Principal!
