Find a Mentor

When considering whether to enter into school administration, I suggest finding a mentor who can provide candid feedback on the ins and outs of school admin. Seek out someone you admire. I avoided school administrators who were workaholics, uninspiring, or the type that didn’t seem to have an entrepreneurial spirit to them. If you work it right, being a school administrator can be meaningful, financially beneficial, and fun. Look for someone who can share their insights on how to thrive in the field of admin.
