About the Author:

Jan Irons Harris, a former principal, is superintendent of Cullman City Schools (A.L.)

Review:

This is a wonderful book for many reasons. Most importantly, I think, because it provides a touchstone to navigate life as a school leader...This is a book to help us stay grounded: to hold onto the good things, to travel the high road, to do the right things. As such, it is a book full of wisdom. (from the foreword by Joseph Murphy, associate dean for special projects, Peabody College of Education, Vanderbilt University)

The Principal's Office is a must read for all new principals. Not only is it an excellent "how to" book for new school administrators, but it successfully demonstrates how a Principal's own core values play an integral role in developing their leadership style. (Ron Saunders, 2008 Georgia Superintendent of the Year and current superintendent, Barrow County Schools (GA))

Effective leadership is a Herculean task, especially during this age of intense scrutiny and accountability. Jan Harris Irons' work illuminates a path through the complex world of the principal. Through well crafted examples, anecdotes, and personal reflections, Jan provides insight into becoming a well-balanced individual and, ultimately, a well-balanced school leader. Her book is a "must" read for novice principals. (Dr. Molly P. Howard, principal, Jefferson County High School, Louisville, GA and 2008 MetLife/National Association of Secondary School Principals Nat)

[This] work is relevant, practical and inspiring. The Principal's Office provides the reader with a blueprint on how to succeed on a daily basis as a principal and as a person. (Mark Edwards, Virginia Superintendent of the Year (2001) and current superintendent Mooresville Graded School District (NC))

The entire Leadership Team at Allegheny Valley has a copy of The Principal's Office by Dr. Jan Harris. Without a doubt, this book offers a lot for consideration and is an excellent guide in further educating newer administrators and reinforcing important points for those with experience. (Cheryl A. Griffith, Ed.D., superintendent, Allegheny Valley School District, Cheswick, Pennsylvania)
