(This is the final post in a three-part series providing advice to aspiring principals. You can see Part One here and Part Two here) Last week's question was: What advice would you give someone who is interested in becoming a principal? In Part One of this series, Lyn Hilt, Joe Mazza, and Cheryl James-Ward posted their responses -- and I threw-in a few ideas of my own. Earlier this week, Justin Baeder, Allan R. Bonilla and Josh Stumpenhorst are shared their reflections. Scott McLeod, Kelly Young (who I consider a mentor and from whom I've learned more about teaching than ...

In Part One of this series earlier this week, Lyn Hilt, Joe Mazza, and Cheryl James-Ward posted their responses -- and I threw-in a few ideas of my own. Next week, I'll be offering contributions from a few more guests, as well as from readers -- so feel free to contribute your own thoughts!

(This is Part One in a multi-part series) Last week's question was: What advice would you give someone who is interested in becoming a principal? This is Part One in a multi-part series.

This week's guest responses come from Lyn Hilt, Joe Mazza, and Cheryl James-Ward. I'll be posting answers from others on Thursday. But before we get to the thoughts of today's three guests, I'd like to share a few comments of my own. Though I have never ...


Daniel Coyle is the author of The Talent Code: Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How. and its sequel, The Little Book of Talent: 52 Tips for Improving Your Skills. Many educators have read and applied aspects of his book to the classroom (as I have), and he agreed to answer a few questions. In the interview, Dan also invites educators to contribute their experiences to his next book. I'll be responding to last week's question, What advice would you give someone who is interested in becoming a principal?, next Sunday in a multi-part series. There is still plenty of ...

I've taken most of the summer off to do some other writing, and have been posting collections of posts from the first two years of this blog. Alas, this "break" has come to an end, and I thought readers would find it useful if I published one post containing links to all the thematic compilations I've done over the last two months. This "break" has come to an end with the first day of school coming-up on Tuesday. I'll begin this blog's new "season" on Sunday with a very interesting interview with famed teacher and author Rafe Esquith, and then ...
