Nelson Coulter says in his book, Leadership Tools for School Principals, whether moving through the building or supervising an extracurricular activity, it is important that you constantly reinforce your commitment to the LEARNING process. The principal is the lead learner of the campus. Instruction should be top priority. The only way to accomplish this is to know the weaknesses and strengths of the your students and teaching staff. This can only been evident to you if you are The Highly Visible Principal.
Be the change you want the world to see.
