62 - Beth Houf: MS Principal, Speaker, and Author

BETH HOUF is a mom, middle school principal, passionate leader & learner, and forever teacher. She’s also the co-author of Lead Like a PIRATE: Make School Amazing for Your Students and Staff. Interact with her on Twitter @BethHouf and engage with ideas from her book at #LeadLAP.

In our conversation, Beth recalls how pressure-packed early years in a principal position almost turned her off from the profession completely, and she explains how a random conversation about Twitter helped revive her passion and calling for school leadership. She describes how Teach Like a Pirate led to Lead Like a Pirate, and discusses the mission and main message of the book. She also shares why she’s excited about education, a couple of productivity hacks she lives by, her passions outside of school, and the voices and resources that inspire growth in her practice today.
