Tales of a Veteran Principal

We discuss the challenges and successes faced by an experienced school leader.

Long time leaders have plenty to teach those new to the job. But the best veteran principals are still learning and growing themselves, despite their many years in the profession. Adam and Rachael sit down with Principal Beth Houf, a seasoned school leader, to discuss:

  • How the year is going

  • Challenges

  • Responding to the year

  • Embracing the power of no

  • Being present with family

Beth Houf is principal of Fulton Middle School in Fulton, Missouri, co-author of Lead Like a Pirate, and a 2016 NAESP National Distinguished Principal.
