Summer Principals Academy
The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Harold S. Henry, Jr. is currently a Network Team Leader with Baltimore City Public Schools, MD, which provides hands-on supports to school leaders in all areas of instruction and operations. Harold leads a team that supports all 35 Charter schools, serving 11,300+ students. Before this, he taught for 4 years in the Business, Finance & Management Academy at Baltimore’s Northwestern Senior High School, then moved to the District Central Office where he was involved with managing budgets and federal grants for the District's 24 middle schools. From 2007-2009, Harold was the Finance Director with Imagine Schools - DC Region, where he oversaw the fiscal activities and planning for a group of Charter schools in Washington, D.C. Harold received a B.S. in Marketing from Hampton University, VA in 2000. He has also completed coursework in Education for certification and leadership training. Harold has extensive experience with leadership training: working with programs sponsored by the Greater Baltimore Foundation; participating and facilitating professional development with City Schools; and working with Targeted Leadership Consulting and Education Resource Strategies. He has twice been inducted in Cambridge's Who's Who lists - for Teachers in 2002 and for Administrators in 2006. Harold hopes SPA will allow him to build the theoretical justification for what he has experienced and observed in his professional life, with the purpose of formulating a holistic approach to educational leadership development and practice. His goal is to help school leaders be transformational in their practice; to not simply promote change, but nurture sustainable reform in urban education.
