The New School Leader #26

School leadership is a calling to inspire, empower, and create positive change. Embrace this challenge with passion, purpose, and a commitment to lifelong learning, and you’ll unlock the true potential of your leadership journey.

Now let’s get started…

The Good Stuff

1. Struggling to get a handle on student discipline as a new school leader? Start with these 5 strategies for managing behavior effectively from Day 1.

2. Making the shift from teacher to administrator? Don’t assume you already have built-in trust with staff. As a new AP, you’ll need to be deliberate about building those bonds. Here’s how.

3. One of the best ways to overcome the teacher shortage is to support and retain the teachers we already have. Now that it’s summer, it’s time to start thinking about how you are going to support your new teachers this year.

Book Recommendation

Hands down, this is the one book every new assistant principal needs to read before stepping into the role. Not only that, we think it is a book that every teacher and administrator should read. Conflict is part of the gig, but this book will give you practical steps that will save you a lot of headaches. If you’re going to read just one book this summer, make it this one.

Final Thought

Remember, the role of an assistant principal is crucial in shaping the future of education and making a positive impact on the lives of students and teachers alike. We hope the resources in this newsletter will inspire and guide you as you continue to grow and excel in your leadership journey.
