elementary department head/lead teacher

At my small Christian school, we have an elementary academic dean and a high school academic dean. They both report to the administrator, who is the pastor of the church. But we really don't have a principal. The elementary academic dean is leaving next year, and I have been asked to fill her shoes. We will have a principal next year, but he will more in charge of high school. So essentially, I will be like the elementary department head/lead teacher. I'm kind of excited about it, because I can plan elementary activities, lead elementary staff meetings, and implement some ideas that I think would be great for the school. Does anyone have any tips/suggestions for me? If you have been a lead teacher at your school, what kinds of things were you responsible for? Any advice, tips, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Will you explain this a bit more? Are you a classroom teacher also or just part of administration? We currently have one principal over preK-12th, and itís just too much for one person. We canít afford two separate administrators though.

I am the first grade teacher. I would still teach first grade next year, in addition to being the elementary department head.

Thanks. I may bother you with more questions as we start planning for next year.
