MEDIA REVIEWS

"Gigi Schweikert is one of my favorite writers--she speaks from real life experience, cuts right to the chase, and uses humor well to enliven her messages. Being a Supervisor touches on a critical role. Study after study has confirmed that the quality of supervision in a center has a direct impact on quality of care. Gigi provides a healthy mix of self-evaluation, reflection tools, and practical advice current or would-be supervisors can put immediately into practice."
--Roger Neugebauer, publisher, Exchange Magazine

"Making the leap from teaching to supervising is both exciting and terrifying. In this volume of the Winning Ways series, Gigi Schweikert helps individuals draw on their knowledge of best practices in working with young children to strengthen their repertoire of skills in working with adults. Packed with practical advice, Being a Supervisor will bolster your confidence and help you become respected supervisor in your early childhood program."
--Paula Jorde Bloom, PhD, Michael W. Louis Endowed Chair, McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership at National Louis University

"Education leadership is perhaps the most rewarding and at times most frustrating role anyone can have. Being a Supervisor is clear, honest, inspirational, and above all things, deeply human. In short, all of the traits of a great leader. This is a great book and a vital tool for any supervisor or aspiring supervisor who wants to do the best for their students now and in the future."
--Richard Gerver, globally renowned author and speaker; expert in education, leadership, and change

"The eight concepts in this book will help people new to supervision roles and it will give food for thought for those more experienced. As I read this book, I could hear Gigi talking to me as only she can. It's like having a private mentoring session!"
--Debbie Silver, director of professional development at Child Care Resources of Rockland and early childhood speaker and trainer
