NASSP Principal Leadership Magazine: Why Hiring Makes Me Nervous.

hiring

My article from the November edition.

Hiring teachers makes me nervous.

As does:

Monkey’s.

Hotel beds (germ central).

Fast food drive-thru’s (they always rip you off).

Self-checkout.

School water fountains (germ central… kid style).

Mean 2nd graders.

And doctor’s exams as soon as I reached 40.

Enjoy the digital version of the magazine.  I certainly do.

If you enjoy the magazine, please let me know. micsmith@principalspage.com

    I can understand why it makes you nervous, but I would think it the situation would also make you mad. Running an organization where you can’t continually evaluate and bring in the very best talent, means you cant possibly be doing the best by the kids.

    I’m the CEO of a venture backed software firm, and if I settled for pretty good employees I would be out of business today. It is hard not to worry about America’s future when our schools rank so poorly against the rest of the world.

    I just believe we would be better as a society if the U.S. once again led the world in providing the very best education to it’s children.

    I’m not sure what I can do to help the situation, but I’m open to suggestions.
