There is little mention in the mainstream media about building level administrators; principals, assistant principals, deans, etc. Teachers’ stories make headlines and waves more often, leaving much of principals’ work a behind-the-scenes phenomenon. While not diminishing the work of teachers or the struggles they face in their classrooms, I want to bring focus to the unique job of the building principal. Specifically, this course will take principals through a series of self-reflections, readings and meditations intended to help you find space for yourself and your own spirit within the intense challenges of leading your school. We’ll cover the concept of bridging (Bringing in the good from your external environment) and buffering (protecting faculty, staff and students from negativity in the external environment) as well as help you give yourself permission to just let things be. This is possible by balancing your first five chakras through meditation and mindfulness. Principals, I’ve been where you are! I believe this course will help you work and live differently, in connection with your own spirit.
