Abstract/ Summary

The average Maine school principal supervises 40 staff members, is responsible for 355 students, and spends the day dealing with manifold management and monitoring duties. Maine's principals are seasoned teachers and administrators who, overall, feel effective in their jobs, according to a recent study from the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development. The greatest challenge is finding a balance between their professional and personal lives, and dealing with the constraints of the education hierarchy.
