9780807746974: The Boss of the Whole School: Effective Leadership in Action

Elizabeth Hebert uses her 21 years of experience as an elementary school principal to offer inspiration and guidance to aspiring and practicing administrators. Using real-life stories from her career, this book examines the responsibilities, demands, and challenges principals manage on a daily basis; demonstrates how qualities of leadership mature over time and the conditions that both nurture and suppress it; and provides a heartfelt and compelling rationale for becoming (and staying!) a school principal. New and veteran administrators will recognize the authentic school scenarios and appreciate the sincere voice of the author as she passes on valuable lessons learned.
