School Leader First

First and foremost, I am an active PRINCIPAL. For the past 11 years, I have led nearly 700 students, faculty, and staff to Level 5 status in the role of school leader. Over that time span, I have been blessed to receive several awards and recognitions for the outstanding work that our campus has accomplished together.  Some of these include:      

  • Tennessee Principals Association Board of Directors, 2017-present
  • NAESP National Distinguished Principal, 2017
  • Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, Principal of the Year, 2017

 These experiences have afforded me the opportunity to continue in my current role as a PRINCIPAL, yet branch out and expand my horizons by working and collaborating with other schools and school districts on improving educational best practices. 

Now more than ever, those on the front lines of education who come to school every day to change the trajectory of our youth need our best. They need school administrators to be solution-driven, student focused, creative, collaborative leaders who have the ability to expand their horizons by bringing others on campus along through leadership opportunities. By changing the culture, you change the tone. By changing the tone, you change the trajectory of students. That is what we signed up to accomplish.

As a life-long educator, Kevin Armstrong Ed. D. will provide expertise and assist
you and your team to invoke change in 4 educational realms:

School Culture

School Culture: "Be The Culture Creator"

For the foundation of any successful school, school culture will make or break you. In order to increase student achievement, attendance, and teacher retention, you must have a culture in your building that attracts students and faculty. Allow me the opportunity to assist in creating change on your campus through the vehicle of school culture.

Student Ownership

Student Ownership: "The True Investor"

Student ownership is like stock in a company. Students who feel they have an investment in your school will flourish. These investors come to school daily, bringing new ideas to improve your campus, reporting any wrong that takes place in your building, while learning lifelong skills that will carry them the remainder of their life. Allow me the opportunity to assist in creating opportunities that will lead to increased student ownership and buy-in.

Master Schedule

Master Schedule: "What Is On Your Schedule?"

Master schedules can create a feel of excitement or one of frustration. The flow of your school building starts with a clear, concise master schedule that is built with the student in mind. Allow me to assist your team in creating schedules that benefit students and cut down on clutter and wasted transitions.

Capacity Building (1)

Capacity Building: "Turning Robin Into Batman"

Principals have future leaders in their building and often do not have ways to streamline the strengths of their faculty and staff. It often begins with trust and relinquishing control to those who want the best for the mutual investments, students and school campus. Allow me the opportunity to assist your team in creating leadership opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to increase capacity on your campus.
