What is Leadership? December 2010 -- There is one personal attribute that is essential for extraordinary leadership -- and that is humility.
The Principal is the Key to a School's Success September 2010 -- “Many principals have reported that
procedures used to evaluate them are neither helpful for improving their
professional performance, nor for guiding their future professional growth.”
Bob Arnold Remembered December 2009 --“The work that MESPA leaders actualized during those early years under Bob's leadership laid the foundation for much of the Public Employee Labor Relations Act (PELRA), which has evolved into the bargaining rights principals have today.”
"Thank you MESPA members for your grounded beliefs and work that
demonstrates that every child is a possibility and every challenge an
opportunity." -- MESPA Executive Director P. Fred Storti
