Marcus, the principal of a vocational school, describes the challenges of his job, what he likes most, his key decisions, how difficult getting into the industry is, and work-life balance. Marcus tells us that he loves his work, but that it takes a lot of time and commitment, much like having a baby. He expands on this analogy, saying, "I nurture it. I sleep on it. It keeps me up at night. I love it more than it loves me back."
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.
