2016 - 2017 National Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year for Colorado (Elementary)

 ~ Heidi Wagner ~

 
 
  Heidi Wagner was named the 2016-2017 National Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year for Colorado (Elementary) in February 2017. This award is sponsored by McGraw Hill Education. Heidi has served as the assistant principal of Eugene Field Elementary School in Littleton Public Schools for three years. She has worked in education for 16 years. Thank you, Heidi, for all that you do for Colorado students!  Join us in celebrating this outstanding assistant principal leader!

Where do the great ideas come from in your organization?
The greatest ideas come from true collaboration, in the trenches; doing the real work with others. As an instructional leader, I believe that my greatest responsibility is to build the capacity and efficacy of others as we work to grow children and better our world.

 

What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time?
The advice I would offer to someone going into a leadership position for the first time would be to invest in relationships! The time spent building relationships with kids, families, staff members, district personnel, and communities members will help make the work more rewarding and provide greater opportunities for collaboration.

 

Who has had a major impact on you as a leader, and why?
I feel truly lucky to have worked with so many amazing professionals on my journey in education so far. The principals I have worked for have allowed me to take on new responsibilities in a safe environment. There are so many qualities of my previous and current leader(s) I hope I display daily.

 

What is your favorite destination in Colorado?
I appreciate all of the mountain towns near Denver, from Idaho Springs, Keystone, Breckenridge to Avon; each offers their unique characteristics and make weekend getaways wonderful winter, spring, summer, or fall!
