About This Book
What do school leaders need to know? Drawing on more than 25 years of leadership experience, Thomas R. Hoerr offers invaluable advice on running a school. From evaluating teachers to working with parents, from managing meetings to making a difference, Hoerr addresses the challenges of school leadership and shares his proven strategies for success.
Hoerr explains that, above all, leadership is about relationships. The best supervisors support teamwork and collegiality, value diversity, and encourage everyone around them to grow. Using examples from his own school, Hoerr outlines ways to become a more effective leader and create a culture of learning. He also discusses the history and future of leadership, focusing on how educators can move schools forward.
With more than 100 quotes on leadership from educators around the world, The Art of School Leadership is a thorough and thoughtful account of what it takes to lead a school.
