Andrew Jackson – My New Principal

Hello, and welcome to Episode 54 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by my new principal Andrew Jackson. I have started at a new school, and I couldn’t think of a better way to start my new journey than to sit down with the man who is now my boss, and in a lot of ways is the reason that I choose to change schools.

Jackson and I talk about the importance of building a strong team, improving staff morale, the role of a principal in a school, the gap that funding causes in schools, reflection as a method of problem solving, building relationships with your staff and peers and students,

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 54 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Andrew Jackson.


Jackson, I appreciate you taking the time to talk to me for the show. I certainly knew I was making the right choice before this, but I’m even more sure now.
