Principals are Experts on What Happens in Schools September 2010 --
"NAESP knows that principals play a vital role in setting a
school’s culture that is focused on teaching and learning. All federal reform
initiatives must allow for flexibility and local control to ensure that unique
school community and student needs are met and sustained."
Enrich Your World and Beyond May 2010 -- Thank you for the great
opportunity to have served as the NAESP representative these past six years. I
am proud to have been a part of an outstanding organization that serves our
Minnesota elementary and middle level principals. MESPA has provided me endless
support throughout my nineteen years as principal.
Reflections... December 2009 -- "The principalship can be so complex and overwhelming that
without associations such as these (MESPA and NAESP), it would be difficult to be an effective
and successful leader in education."
Mission: The Minnesota Elementary School Principals' Association is dedicated to promoting and improving education for children and youth, strengthening the role as educational leader for elementary and middle level principals, and collaborating with partners in education to assist in achieving these goals.
Leading schools toward excellence through the MESPA vision to be the premiere resource for preparing today's principals for tomorrow and a strong leading voice for public education.
