Bob Wortman is a talented elementary school principal who writes with conviction and humor of his goals, vision, and strategies as a principal in this book directed at all who are interested in school revitalization--classroom teachers, site and district administrators, parents, policymakers, and funders. As he explains the ways in which he strives to create a schoolwide learning community that includes everyone--students, teachers, family members, support personnel, and the neighborhood beyond the school doors--you'll be treated to the rich possibilities of vital public school learning. The book opens with a description of the "Day in the Life of a Principal." While Bob explains it's impossible to capture the wide spectrum of activities, interactions, and surprises a principal encounters, he shows that fostering a successful school community demands not only a vision and philosophy but a practical sense that includes: understanding how people learn; making effective use of time and organization; knowing how to maintain positive relationships with all members of the school community--parents, students, and teachers. In this fascinating, personal account of how a principal can make a difference in the lives of all he touches through his work, Bob describes specific strategies for creating a positive learning environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and can focus on the business of learning.
