In 1924, Katherine M. Mansfield, secretary of the Canton Women Principals Club, proposed a resolution urging for the creation of a state organization for elementary principals. "It is essential that we organize ourselves for professional betterment. A state organization of elementary school principals would provide the opportunity for an exchange of ideas so necessary to keep us alert and growing. We need each other. We need our ideas checked up with those of others throughout the state. A state organization would represent the collective power of all and would do for each of us what we could not achieve ourselves."
Almost 100 years later, we continue to hear similar refrains from administrators across the state. Hone your craft with educators across Ohio as we work together to stay current amid the constantly shifting educational landscape. As educators, we must remain steadfast in our commitment to professional growth, collegial collaboration, and excellence in education.
