First #ncadmin Chat of 2015-2016

I am pleased to announce the first #ncadmin chat of the 2015-2016 school year will be September 16th at 8:00 PM EST.  Our topic will be "Leadership Best Practice in a New School".  The #ncadmin chat cohort motto is "Growing Great School Leaders."  Therefore, I believe we couldn't open up this year with a more appropriate topic.

This topic is notably personal, not only as co-founder of #ncadmin, but primarily because I am currently a first-year Principal myself.

Furthermore, we will have two tremendous Principals to facilitate the chat, both of which transitioned to new schools and new districts this summer.  Both are greatly-respected and widely-recognized for their leadership and innovation, not only in North Carolina, but also nationally.

The moderators:

Derek McCoy (@mccoyderek) is Principal of West Rowan Middle School & the 2014 NASSP National Digital Principal.  He is also co-founder of #ncadmin and has moderated countless twitter chats.

Carrie Tulbert (@carrietulbert) is Principal of Concord Middle School & the 2014 North Carolina Wells Fargo Principal of the Year.  Dr. Tulbert moderated an #ncadmin chat last year titled, "Having a Voice in Educational Policy."

I (@CSmithGoBlue) will also be serving as Co-co-moderator and am the Interim Principal of Lake Norman Charter High School.

Both Derek and Carrie are invaluable members of my Professional Learning Network, which is parallel to my professional growth.  I am thrilled to have them moderate, participate, and lead during September 16th's #ncadmin chat.  I hope you will join us.
