Flying High: How to Engage and Retain Your Best Teachers | Inside the Principal’s Office

A few weeks ago, we had a robust conversation on hiring practices and the importance of the team that leaders build and surround themselves with. We spend so much time in the recruitment process, vetting best candidates for our school and community, and providing orientation and professional development. With this spirit in mind, how can we ensure we are retaining the top quality educators that we invest so much time in to ensure our campus continues to move forward and thrive?

This episode of Inside the Principal’s Office welcomes Ann Kox (Principal, American School of Lima) and Jerrod Dastrup (Principal, Uinta Meadows Elementary). Co-Hosted by Michael McWilliams (Principal, Savannah Elementary, Texas) and Charles Williams (Principal, Plato Learning Academy, Illinois).
