You Have to Go to School - You're the Principal! by Paul G. Young

Book Description

The 101 tips in this guide from a recent past president of NAESP reflect the wit, wisdom, integrity and experience that propelled Paul Young to the top leadership of his principal colleagues. The book is full of unique ideas and refocused essentials will improve the practice and job satisfaction of any individual serving as principal in an elementary or middle school or anyone preparing for that position. This book can become a handbook for reflective practice and help leaders to stretch their thinking. The conversational tone makes it the next best thing to having the president of NAESP as a personal mentor on the other end of the phone line. Every principal will encounter and identify with the meaning of these tips in their very own special way. The recommendations are intended as a guide to success, source of reflection and discussion, and a handbook that can be used over and over for support as principals strive to continuously improve their practice.
