Being a principal and essentially being the leader of a school is a difficult job filled with responsibility and stress. This book will help to make the first year easier, providing you with all the information you did not learn in school. In this new, extensively researched book, first-year principals will learn how to deal with teachers, step out from behind the previous principal's shadow, make changes without changing too much too soon, deal with parents and students, become accustomed to the workload, and much more. Additionally, you will learn the common mistakes first-year principals make. Ultimately, you will clearly understand what comes with being a principal. You will be able to clarify and define your roles, expectations, and responsibilities. We will provide you with advice and tips from novice and veteran principals who have all been in your position. Whether you are the principal of a small, large, public, private, urban, rural, or suburban school, this book will be an indispensable companion. With the help of this book, you will not only survive, but you will enthusiastically look forward to your sophomore year.
