Assistant Principals Putting People First
An assistant principal shares strategies for leading and working with others effectively.
Assistant principal Natalie Nelson has one mantra she has always emphasized: “people precede product and process.” Prioritizing those around her has helped her throughout her career as a dedicated servant leader. Adam and Rachael sit down with Natalie to talk about her role as an AP and why it’s crucial to stay people-focused.
Natalie Nelson serves as assistant principal at Clara H. Carlson School in Elmont, New York.
