My membership with NAESP is a rewarding partnership that has afforded me new friendships with colleagues outside of my district and state. Attending the NAESP conferences allows me to interact with peers and expand my knowledge base.  These interactions help me foster a more effective learning environment for all who enter our school and build upon my creativity as an instructional leader so I feel better equipped to work with staff, student, and parents. 

Becoming a mentor in the NAESP Principal Mentor Program reminded me of my first years in leadership and made me realize the importance of supporting people new to the field of learning and teaching.  It also validated my work ethic and has strengthened me as a leader. The mentor program helps build strong relationships and an effective network of colleagues who have the same concerns and can offer a variety of strategies to alleviate those concerns.  The friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime!
