Are you considering a promotion to an administrative position? MAESP and MASSP are hosting this workshop to give leaders an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills; hear from current administrators and participate in writing prompts, interviews, data analysis and administrative problem solving. This event will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm virtually! The workshop will be interactive, engaging and timely!

The intent of this workshop is to allow participants to experience “real-life” administrative responsibilities and gain personal confidence with many of the activities normally used by districts to determine a candidate’s readiness for promotion.  The activities include: responding to a writing prompt, communicating with teachers and central office personnel, analyzing data & reporting to the School Leadership Team, conducting an observation and providing feedback, participating in a problem-solving activity, experiencing a personal interview and gathering tips for building a resume & writing a cover letter.
