2020 Lessons in Leadership | Inside the Principal’s Office

In 2020, the disruptions in education pushed the structures of our educational systems to their limits, forcing educational leaders to develop and implement creative and innovative solutions. Inspired by the article “From 7 Superintendents: What 2020 Taught Us About Leading,” Inside the Principal’s Office convenes a special episode with influential educational leaders to not only discuss the leadership lessons learned in 2020, but to also look forward to 2021 and beyond.

Inside the Principal’s Office welcomes Dr. Robert Thornell (Chief Executive Director of Learning and Teaching, Lewisville ISD) and Dr. Daniel Woestman (Superintendent, District 100) to share their experiences and join the dialogue. Co-hosted by Michael McWilliams (Principal, Savannah Elementary School) and Charles Williams (Principal, Plato Learning Academy).
