I started my administrator role when No Child Left Behind was first implemented and the significant paradigm of change with the role of building principal from the ‘middle manager’ to the ‘instructional leader’ caused me to seek guidance outside of my local district to guide my path. NASSP and the Tennessee Association of Secondary School Principals (TnASSP) were vital in the shaping of my leadership style and strategies in this role.

—Troy Kilzer, Director of Schools, Chester County School District, TN
