NC Principal Fellow, Kisha Young (Class 25)NC Principal Fellow, Kisha Young (Class 25) acknowledges the need for school leaders to be flexible at all times. She understands that as a leader, not only do the students rely on your direction, but also your staff.  As a leader, checking on your staff’s well being – mentally and physically – is essential.  She points out that leadership is not only about managing people, but should also include building and nurturing relationships.  It’s important to take a break from all of the reports, must do’s and don’t do’s and simply ask, “How are you doing?  Is there anything I can do?  How’s your family?”  These gestures will mean much more after the pandemic than if every Google Meet was performed to school district standards.
