Announcement. And it’s a weird one. I, Christy, an actually not a principal this year. You might notice my new home office in the background. That’s because I now work from home as an education improvement specialist for a small but mighty education research and consulting company. I get to work with principals and other educators from all over the country to help improve student outcomes. Why’s this weird? Because principal-ing and public ed is my passion and identity! And this wasn’t really the path I anticipated taking, but I know it’s right for me right now, and I’m so excited to share more of what I learn and the broader perspective of education in relation to the work principals do day in and day out. So, tell us your thoughts. Please say you’ll stay with TMP on our new journeys! 🙏
