Transitioning From High School to Elementary
How the role of principal changes across grade configurations.
Though it’s stating the obvious, a kindergartener learns vastly different from how a senior in high school does. But how is that difference reflected in the work of school leaders? We sit down with Colorado principal Carlos Perez to talk about his transition from high school to elementary. In this episode, we discuss:
- Differences and similarities
- Advice for principals making the transition
- The importance of relationships
Carlos Perez is principal of Avondale Elementary School in Avondale, Colorado.
