5 Things: November/December 2019
The work of a principal is never done. You do it all, and you love it. But even principals require support. We want to keep you in the know about how your Association is serving you while you serve kids. Here are five things you need to know about:
The National Outstanding Assistant Principals (NOAP) awards program recognizes pre-K–8 assistant principals (APs) who are doing a superb job in their roles. At NAESP’s 2018 annual conference in Spokane, Washington, past NAESP president Eric S. Cardwell recognized NOAP winners such as Marché Phillips (pictured), assistant principal of Chickasaw Elementary School in Olive Branch, Mississippi. The nomination period ends March 27, 2020.
