Description:

The formal preparation for becoming a school leader usually trains aspiring principals on basic topics like instruction and curriculum, supervision and evaluation, finance, and school law. But in most cases, before a teacher can become a principal, he or she must first work as an assistant principal. Fledgling administrators are often left to their own devices to navigate the slippery terrain inherent in this role.What They Didn’t Tell Me About Being a School Leader addresses some of the thornier aspects of being an assistant principal: handling discipline, mediating student conflicts, working with parents, facilitating parent conferences, and working with staff members. A handful of beginning school administrators are fortunate enough to have a mentor who provides guidance in these tough areas, but for the many novice administrators who don’t have someone to show them the ropes, this book will teach the tricks of the trade in order to survive and thrive in the job.
