Sponsored by the Maine Principal’s’ Association

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

MPA Conference Center, 50 Industrial Drive, Augusta


Program Description:

This workshop begins with an analysis of the unique challenges that principals face as they strive to be instructional leaders while managing everything else.  The challenge is getting past H.S.P.S.—Hyperactive Superficial Principal Syndrome—and getting effective and highly effective teaching in every classroom. 

The workshop is organized around three broad areas, each with several subcomponents:

1.  Set big-picture goals and stay focused:  a.) Decide on the “big rocks” for each year; b.) Plan for the year, month, week, and day; and c.) Monitor progress

2.  Continuously improve teaching and learning:  a.) Clarify curriculum and discipline expectations; b.) Orchestrate and support team meetings and PD; and c.) Frequently visit classrooms and give feedback

3.  Hone priority management skills: a.) Write it down, prioritize, and follow-up; b.) Delegate to competent people; c.) Minimize time-wasting crises and activities; and d.) Take care of yourself

Throughout the workshop, Kim will use clickers (audience response devices) and small-group discussion to surface reactions and ideas.  Participants will use a rubric to rate themselves on each of the ten areas and conclude by setting goals in areas that need improvement.
