Come find out what you can do to cope with common stressors that school site administrators face and how you can personally build resiliency through strategic coping skills.
I am currently the Director of Human Resources, Santa Monica-Malibu USD. I have spent 4 years as a high school assistant principal and 7 years as a middle school principal. Four years into my principalship, I entered a doctoral program looking for something to "feed" my professional growth because I always felt that I couldn't get everything done that needed my attention. My research showed the principals typically only stay in their positions for 3-5 years so for my dissertation, I focused on why some principals stay in their jobs for more than five years and how they coped with the stress of the job and built resiliency.
