School leadership is hard, and it’s hard on school leaders.More and more school leaders are struggling with the ever-expanding expectations and associated stressors of the role. In School Leadership from A to Z, Bradley James Davies hopes to turn the tide and bring more joy and wellness back to the principal’s office.Through a series of short, alphabetized essays like “C is for Culture,” “I is for Introverts Beware,” “L is for Lifeguard Parenting,” “T is for Tender Tough Teflon,” and “Y is for You’re Really Not That Funny,” Davies draws on his two decades of serving elementary, middle, and high schools as a teacher, coach, and administrator to bring you the best practices, most effective approaches, and tried-and-true tricks of the trade. Via stories of his struggles and successes, Davies’ refreshingly funny insights offer a way forward toward a place where both leading well and living well need not be as rare as a copy machine that never breaks down.School Leadership from A to Z is a must-read insider’s peek behind the curtain of the good, bad, and ugly of school leadership. Part how-to, part memoir, this humble and humorous guide will prove powerfully helpful for school leaders in every stage of their careers.
