It’s National Assistant Principals Week, a time to celebrate the contributions assistant principals (APs) make to their schools, by ensuring positive cultures for teaching and learning.
Here we share four School of Thought posts by assistant principals and NASSP members. We hope their ideas for making students feel comfortable, engaged, and safe at school inspire your work in your own building.
- APs in South Carolina offer ideas for addressing the core competencies of social and emotional learning.
- An AP in Michigan suggests innovative ways for educators to make meaningful student connections.
- An AP in Arizona shares how to connect with students from the first day of school.
- An AP in Oregon explains how student mentoring transformed the culture at her middle school.
