Melinda Miller is the elementary principal in Springfield Missouri and has been rocking that role for 15 years, unable to imagine doing anything else. She loves connecting with other principals and collaborating online. Teacher’s work really inspires her and she strives to help her teachers grow. Technology integration is my strength as a leader. She has been Principal of the Year, a podcaster, she is a Google Certified Teacher/Administrator, she has been a district president for Southwest Missouri Association for Elementary Principals and has planned Edcamps. She is co author of a book about to be released this year that will no doubt impact school cultures across the country with it focus on appreciation and motivation for educators.
In this episode, we learn about several communities that Melinda has both led and enriched. She shares the benefits of being a connected professional, and we learn more about the impact of showing appreciation for staff. Through her story, we learn how we too can grow communities by building them, taking risks, and learning about ourselves through the process. This interview was so fun as any experience ever is with Melinda, and I know you will love her Community Builders story.
