This elementary school secretary describes the challenges of her job, what she likes most, her key decisions, how to get into the industry, and work-life balance. If you want to work in school administration, she suggests going to a school and shadowing the staff there, as well as being a substitute at schools.
Elementary, middle, and high school principals lead teachers and other members of school staff. They manage the day-to-day operations of elementary, middle, and high schools. They set goals and objectives and evaluate their school's progress toward meeting them.
Most states require public school principals to be licensed as school administrators. Licensure requirements vary from state to state, but most require a master’s degree or some other training. Some require candidates to pass a test and take continuing education classes to keep their license.
