The University of Northern Iowa Ed Leadership K-12 Principalship Program will undoubtedly give any upcoming educational leader the necessary tools to effectively lead a 21st century school.  The program surpassed my expectations through its rigorous, challenging curriculum matched with top-notch instructors who encouraged me to think critically, self reflect, and apply learning.  Not only was I offered engaging learning opportunities, but I was also provided with a wealth of resources, tools, and knowledge all relevant to what I'm doing as a leader today.  I am grateful to the program and instructors for all they have done to ensure success for beginning leaders.  For those who are willing to work hard, have a passion and desire to be an effective instructional leader, and are willing to challenge themselves, then the UNI Principalship program is a perfect fit!
