A student of the independent school model, I began my quest, 20+ years ago, to better understand the fabric of these institutions and the challenges they face. While learning about the culture and structure of independent school education, I have also been developing my own vision of what it takes to be a thriving organization no matter the school or its affiliations. I understand that thriving institutions of learning, to be competitive, must be:
• child-centered places of learning
• hire and retain the best, most diverse, faculty
• be viable places of learning, for students and faculty
• build an organization capable of continuous growth and renewal – making local, regional, and global connections
While exploring Principalaim, I hope you find information and resources that will inspire you to look for ways to create spaces for children to grow as they learn; to seek professionals who bring a diverse perspective to their classroom community; to work to create school communities where explicit child-centered learning takes place; and to work to create connections with schools both near and far. Welcome to Principalaim!
