This week Theresa and I talk about her experience as a new administrator last year and she provides advice to those jumping into the profession.  She talks about the experience of also hosting a podcast, the PrincipalCast, which was recently announced will be renamed PrincipalPLN.  We discuss her experience leading a private school in Michigan that does not receive any public funds.  She also provides other podcast and book recommendations.  Finally, she sells the audience on Voxer, an amazing app that allows educators to build unique chats and grow together.  Don't wait like me...get this app immediately!
