This book was prepared over the many years (30 to be exact) of my working in school administration. There are many ways that a teacher can be promoted to the assistant principalship and I hope this book will be helpful to the reader. Often teachers see the assistant principal as a position that gets them out of the classroom and will fatten their wallet at the same time. Both can be true but the roles and responsibilities of the assistant principal may not be for every teacher. Are you sure that there is a significant increase in pay for the time and aggravation that comes with the job? Do you want to work with student discipline and irate parents a large part of your day? Will you enjoy sitting on Friday nights at away football games or listening to a band concert till 9PM? Do you want to use the assistant principalship as a stepping stone to the principalship or are you a career assistant? The book discusses what you should think about before you start pursuing the assistant principalship and what to do if you do decide that this is the job for you. I include resume and interview tips to assist you in that very important part of the hiring process. Tips for the Prospective Assistant Principal was written for the aspiring administrator that wants to make a difference in American schools. I hope you find the information pertinent to you as you pursue your goal.
